The 6th Grade Atlanta Symphony Orchestra trip was a great success! Our students were extremely well behaved and represented Durham very well. Thank you for allowing them the opportunity to hear such a high-caliber group perform. I firmly believe these kids will be better musicians and well-rounded human beings because of experiences like this!
