The Delta Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce that Jonesboro Public Schools Micro Society Magnet School will be our adopted school for February 2012. The DSO recently received a grant from the Target Foundation that will help to fund two performances for the student body at Micro Society, help to purchase equipment for the music class room and bring students to our upcoming Young Artists Concerto Concert. Executive Director Christy McKeel said, This is such a wonderful opportunity for the DSO to share what it is to be a musician and to have a career in the music industry. The Jonesboro Public Magnet School program at Micro Society teaches children in the environment of a small town. Each student has a job. They learn about government, laws and working in various different areas like agriculture and retail.
