Columbia, Dalton Hitting the Right Notes

Columbia/Dalton MusicWritten By Nina Walsh

Columbia Middle School and Dalton Elementary School have collaborated for nearly two years in an effort to bridge their music programs. The advanced choirs at both schools perform for and critique each other at least once during the school year.

Each week in the mornings, several Dalton fifth-graders voluntarily join Columbia’s sixth-grade orchestra. Dalton students earn music certificates and become leaders in the music classes for their sixth grade year.
