The Symposium on Music in Schools is held once every two years at the Yale School of Music as part of the Music in Schools Initiative. With support from the Yale College Class of 1957, the Symposium honors the achievements of fifty teachers from around the country. For four days in June, these distinguished music educators convene in New Haven to participate in a variety of workshops, discussions, and other events, culminating with the presentation of fifty Yale Distinguished Music Educator Awards at the closing banquet.
This year’s recipients will convene from June 6-9, 2013 to discuss vital issues in music education. As is customary, the 2013 Symposium will focus on one central theme: The Role of Music in School Reform.
