  • Attention all Murphysboro Community members, I have decided to finally act on an idea that will hopefully have a huge impact on all students here in Southern Illinois. Please read the information below. If you were ever in band, chorus, or participated in the fine arts in school, please SHARE this information. I would love to get a great crowd at University Mall Saturday for the students. They are the reasons why we are teaming up to begin this initiative. Music is too important for our students! The Southern Illinois Music Education Initiative: The purpose is to raise awareness to keep music in the local schools. Programs have been feeling the crunch lately with cutbacks or elimination due to funding. We are kicking off the initiative with an awareness jazz concert at the University Mall in Carbondale, Saturday April 19th by JC Penney at 2 PM. The MMS Jazz Ensemble with special guest soloist Shadi Frick, Carbondale Middle School Band Director, will perform. Any and all community members are encouraged to attend. I have contacted the Southern Illinoisan for possible publicity. Please contact me if you have any other publicity contacts. This is to show awareness for music education in our schools locally! I hope a lot of you can make it out Saturday to support our students. Thanks! Nick Williams, Director of Bands, Murphysboro Middle School.
