Students Shine as 2018 Music Showcase Winners
This year’s K12 Music Showcase, which was held during the month of July, was a great way for students to showcase their summer musical skills. We received many outstanding performances from students in kindergarten through high school.
We invite you to view our online collection of participants, and see the fantastic submissions we received this year.
If you submitted an entry for your student, you should have received a participant certificate. If you missed it, you can download your certificate of participation, print it, personalize it by filling in your musician’s name, and pin it somewhere in your home to encourage their musical talent.
