El Sistema Director Rebecca Levi Wins Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award
Our own El Sistema Director, Rebecca Levi has been selected to attend the 2013 Symposium on Music in Schools and to receive the Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award. From a pool of nearly 300 nominees representing 45 states, Ms. Levi was one of 50 teachers chosen to receive this special distinction by a panel of music professionals for her outstanding accomplishments and vision as a public school music teacher.
At this Symposium on the Yale University Campus, distinguished teachers will be joined by local music teachers from the New Haven Public Schools for several workshops before a concert will be held in the evening. The next day will feature more workshops and culminates with an Awards Dinner. Congratulations Ms. Levi!
