Nominations Are Sought
The North Carolina Symphony is now inviting nominations for the 2010 Maxine Swalin Award for Outstanding Music Educator.
The Maxine Swalin Award is presented annually to a North Carolina music teacher who:
• Makes a lasting difference in the lives of students of all abilities and backgrounds.
• Serves the community in an exemplary manner as a role model in music education.
• Inspires students to reach appropriately high musical standards.
• Instills a love for music in children.
With this $1,000 recognition award, the N.C. Symphony honors Maxine Swalin who, along with her husband, Dr. Benjamin Swalin, N.C. Symphony music director and conductor from 1939-1972, gathered funds from the General Assembly to establish the children’s concert division in 1945. This division of the N.C. Symphony brings more than 45 full-orchestra education concerts to children statewide each year.
Submit your nominations by April 1. The application can be found online at www.ncsymphony.org/education.
