RPO Musicians Honor Local Music Educators

Some of us are fortunate enough to have had a teacher who moves us in one way or another - a teacher who makes an impact so profound that our lives are forever changed. For instance, my high school chorus director introduced me to live Broadway musicals with field trips to see shows in Boston and gave me a greater understanding of music.

To recognize gifted, dedicated music educators, the RPO musicians have since 1988 honored local teachers with the annual RPO Musicians’ Awards for Outstanding Music Educators. This year’s winners are:
  • Dr. Lon Beery, Choral (Spry Middle School, Webster)
  • Robert Leader, Instrumental Music – Band (Livonia High School, Livonia)
  • Laurence Tallman, Classroom Specialist (Rush-Henrietta High School, Henrietta)
These three teachers will be recognized publicly at the Philharmonic Series concert on Thursday, April 16 at 8:00 pm at the Eastman Theatre. Click here to read more about the Musicians’ Awards and read bios on the winners.
