Mnozil Brass at the Mondavi Center

Students from Norwood Jr. High, Smythe Academy of Arts and Sciences and Rio Linda High School attended a performance of Mnozil Brass as part of the Twin Rivers Unified School District , John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and  the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts Partners in Education Partnership.

 

Mnozil Brass is an Austrian brass septet that plays classical jazz and other styles using traditional brass instruments as well as more unusual styles of instrumentation. All of the members are graduates of the renowned Vienna College of music and use musical elements as well as comedic elements to engage their audience.

 

This Partners in Education program provided busing and entrance to over 700 TRUSD students last year. This year the partnership plans to send an equal number of students to the Mondavi Center, provide technical stage tours for teachers and students  and provide artist directed professional development for teachers.

 

Thank you to all of our partners!!

In honor of Youth Arts Month the Twin Rivers Unified Board of Trustees and cabinet member Dr. Gloria Hernandez recognized the accomplishments of visual and performing arts teachers during the March 6th TRUSD Board meeting. Rio Linda High School's Richard Smiley and his symphonic band performed a lively arrangement of classic tunes to entertain board meeting participants as well as to illustrate the power of the arts in education.  Interim Superintendent Joseph Willams and VAPA Curriculum Coordinator Jackie White acknowledged the efforts of the TRUSD art and music teachers present with handshakes and framed awards.  Teresa Taranto, Craig Murray, Robert Wadman, James "Andy" Sullivan, Roberto Rivera, Charity Tanaleon and Mr. Smiley were among those teachers present to receive their awards.  A group of Twin Rivers S.M.A.R.T. principals and teachers were also acknowledged for their commitment to the arts at their sites. 

 The evening helped to impress upon the attending board members and the community the value and importance of the arts in education.  The Visual and Performing Arts Department would like to thank all art teachers for their contributions to a comprehensive and art-full academic experience for our students and would like to remind all Twin Rivers teachers to incorporate the arts into instruction during Youth Arts Month!
