Sears School wins award for Excellence in Instrumental Music

 

 

Joining MIC in celebrating Music In Our Schools Month was Sears School and Band Director Patrick Dawson who won the second annual award for Excellence in Instrumental Music. This award recognizes the hard work and dedication of Mr. Dawson and his students with a monetary award for the band program and scholarships for private study at MIC. In addition to performing several selections in MIC’s acclaimed Nichols Concert Hall, the Sears School Band had the opportunity to play alongside members of two of MIC’s professional ensembles-in-residence, the Axiom Brass and the Quintet Attacca.

 

This video showcases Mr. Dawson's approach to shaping young musicians.
