National Symphony Orchestra at John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center

Southern and Northern High School music and band students attended a performance of the National Symphony Orchestra at the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center on December 23, 2016. 



Each year the Program and the Education Committees of the GLAF work with the Garrett County School Leaders to bring performances to Garrett County that will enhance the Maryland State Fine Arts Curricula. The performances are held at Garrett College in cooperation of the college. This experience also helps to bring higher education into the students sights as a possibility for their future.
