President of New England Conservatory Visits JAMM

Representatives from JAMM's 3rd Grade Program at Glacier Valley Stand with Tony Woodcock and Principal Ted Wilson at KTOO Studio.
Tony Woodock, President of the New England Conservatory (NEC) in Boston, visited Juneau to see Juneau Alaska Music Matters (JAMM) in action.  NEC is the music conservatory that helped train fifty musicians passionate for music as a vehicle for social change.  Tony presented at a Juneau World Affairs Council event and shared JAMM's role in the globacl music education movement called El Sistema.  JAMM students were thrilled to open and close the show with live music, which aired on 360 North on June 20th.  Tony was impressed with JAMM's programming and size, as well as the joy, commitment, and discipline the students demonstrated throughout his stay.  Thank you, Tony and Viriginia Woodock, for visiting our beautiful community of Juneau!
