What a joy it was to attend the Robbinsdale Area Schools Annual Fall Music Festival at the Minneapolis Convention Center on November 19, 2012.  It is amazing the level of musical achievement the students demonstrated, thanks in large part in the support of music within the school district, going from elementary school all the way through high school graduation.

The festival's guest conductor, Dr. Matthew Mehaffey, is Associate Professor of Music at the University of Minnesota.

The concert featured performances by the Robbinsdale All-District Elementary Choir, Robbinsdale Armstrong and Cooper Symphonic Bands, Symphony Orchestras, Bel Canto, Cantori and Concert Choirs.

The pictures above were taken during the performance of "Requim" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
