Letter: The universal value of music
Listening to the beautiful music performed by the Cardinal Choir at the funeral of their teacher Sandy Kocka, I was reminded of the excellent music department at our Willmar High School.
We have outstanding teachers in Neil Haugen, Terry Brau and others but the roots for their program begin in the elementary schools.
I hope our school board doesn’t lose sight of this. There is no test that can measure the value of music in our kids’ lives. Music speaks to everyone!
