I would like to thank the Performing Arts Society for connecting Soldotna Elementary to the UAF string and piano faculty as they visited our town over the weekend. As I watched our students enrapt by the sounds of Schubert, I was reminded of my own experiences of hearing professional musicians live for the first time. I know this experience will take root in our students' minds in ways we cannot measure. Our community is incredibly lucky to have such an active arts society working to bring cultural experiences to our town and schools. Thank you!
