Over 5,100 Conroe ISD students from across 34 campuses participated in Fine Arts Education Day on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.
Fine Arts Education Day is a free educational concert featuring the Houston Symphony sponsored by The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The event is designed to introduce fourth grade students to orchestral music and the various instruments in band and orchestra before they choose an elective in fifth grade. Some fifth and sixth graders are invited to watch where their studies could take them if they continue their pursuit of music in junior high.
“Fine Arts Education Day is a unique opportunity for collaboration between Conroe ISD, the Pavilion, and the Houston Symphony. Conroe ISD believes in educating the whole child, and recognizes that the Arts are an integral part of a high quality education,” stated CISD Fine Arts Coordinator Dr. Robert Horton. “We are proud of the opportunities we’re afforded such as Fine Arts Day, and grateful for the many groups that support experiences like this for our students.”
