On Tuesday, March 12, Taylorsville Elementary School students watched the Morehead State University Percussion Studio perform a concert.  The ensemble consisted of 25 music majors who currently attend MSU and is led by Associate Professor of Percussion Dr. Brian Mason. The performance was part of a tour the group was doing to various schools in the area. Erin Kelley, TES music teacher, graduated from MSU with a degree in music education and invited the group to come. The musicians performed many songs, including some by Jimmy Buffet and from the Lion King, on the steel drums and various other percussion instruments.


TES is also in the running to win a $500 music grant from Mall St. Matthews in Louisville. Citizens can help them win by logging on to Facebook, searching for Mall St. Matthews, clicking on the ‘Music in our Schools’ tab and voting for Taylorsville Elementary. You can vote once each day. Voting ends Sunday.
