Alamance County has a brand new music program thanks to the dedication of former educator Beth Bader. This summer, she launched Young Musicians of Alamance to provide instruments and intensive ensemble music instruction by qualified music teachers to an underserved community. Students from Burlington’s Eastlawn Elementary School are the programs first participants, and Beth Bader is eager to expand in the coming years. Based on the El Sistema model, the Young Musicians of Alamance meet at their nucleo site, The First Reformed United Church of Christ in Burlington, North Carolina. Beth Bader recently joined us on “Preview!” to discuss her impetus and vision for this special program.
