March is Music In Our Schools Month
2020 ArkMEA Capitol Concerts
March 18th and 19th
The 23rd Annual Capitol Concerts to Celebrate Music In Our Schools Month will be Wednesday, March 18th and Thursday, March 19th. These concerts take place in the beautiful rotunda of the Arkansas State Capitol. In recent years, we’ve had over 1000 students from schools from all corners of the state. We all join our voices in singing the music selections to accompany each year’s theme. Selections will be chosen before Christmas break. Practice tracks and PDFs of the music will be sent to those who register. Musical selections will be appealing to all school age children.
Before the concert portion of the program, schools are invited to perform individual selections. It is always nice to hear the individual choirs perform.
The concerts will start with individual performances at 10:30, the full concert at 11:00 and will end by noon. We also have a special guest speaker/musician as part of the program. Afterward you may want to set up a tour of the Capitol building and the treasury. There are also many other interesting things to do with your students in Little Rock in the afternoon.
