|Music and the Social Conscience | Northern Berkshire County | 2003
This was a three-day residency for music and history students in Hoosac Valley High School, Adams Memorial Middle School and Drury High School. By learning about specific historical moments in music that helped to catalyze and record social change, students were exposed to popular music from Chile and South Africa, classical music from the Soviet Union, as well as slave songs and Rap/Hip Hop from the United States. This residency brought professional musicians to perform in the schools and linked the arts to the school curriculum.
