Last Thursday WHEELS lower grades students enjoyed an interactive jazz concert put on by Manhattan School of Music students! The WHEELS students made connections between what they're learning in music class and what they heard in the concert. Thank you to MSM for all they do to support WHEELS Music, and to the DOE Office of Arts and Special Projects for supporting our partnership with MSM!
