It is always gratifying to watch children listen, enjoy, and participate in music programs and events. On April 30, as part of St. Augustine Music Festival’s outreach program with St. Johns County schools, a woodwind trio comprised of flutist Les Roettges, bassoonist Conrad Cornelison, and oboist Eric Olson (all principal players in the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra) shared 45 exciting minutes of music with local middle and high school music students at Sebastian Middle School. Students had the opportunity to not only listen to the trio perform assorted familiar classical and popular pieces, they also learned more about each of the instruments as well as stories from the musicians about how they reached their goal of becoming a professional performer. Cooperative ventures between the community and our schools help to further enrich the lives of our students and provide encouragement and support – especially for those students looking to further themselves musically. The St. Augustine Music Festival looks forward to continuing its outreach program to bring music to students in our local schools.
