(News Release, Week of Monday, March 26, 2007)

Student musicians from Memphis City elementary, middle and high schools

The concerts presented by the City’s Office of Youth Services and Community Affairs and Memphis Area Transit Authority are free and open to the public.

“Having these youth in the Hall of Mayors where the City’s former mayors are saluted is fitting as our city’s future leaders could be among these talented youth,” Mayor Willie W. Herrenton stated. “We want to instill civic pride and inspire civic involvement in our youth and the earlier we do this, the better.”
