Five of South's Music Performance Ensembles from band, choir, and orchestra just returned from a whirlwind 6-day tour to Nashville and Memphis. This tour tradition is highly valued by students and staff as a beyond the classroom enrichment experience that enhances a music education. On the tour:
Students grew as musicians at clinics with professors at the University of Memphis and attending a performance of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.
They learned about about cultural and historical perspectives at sites such as the National Civil Rights Museum, Graceland, Andrew Jackson's Hermitage, The Rock 'N Soul Museum, and The Country Music Hall of Fame.
Students had the opportunity to hear top-notch live music wandering the "Honky-Tonk Highway" in Nashville and legendary Beale Street in Memphis.
From South faculty: "Our South students were thoughtful and conscientious ambassadors of South High School and the Minneapolis Public Schools."
