4th Grade Attends Utah Symphony

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Mon, 03/31/2014 - 15:19

Fourth-grade students at Taylor Elementary had a great reason to dress in their very best…the Utah Symphony performance at Salem Hills High School.  This performance is always an exciting time of year for fourth graders because they love to see and hear the different instruments the symphony uses in music.  Several of the selections were familiar to students so it was neat to hear them being performed live.  Many thanks go to the Utah Symphony and those at the district level that help organize this event each year for the fourth-grades in Nebo.  What a memorable time of year!
