The 2021 theme is “Music. The Sound of My Heart,” focusing on the social-emotional benefits of music in students’ live that have carried them through the pandemic and brought joy in their communities.

In Schuylerville, several students from the elementary and middle school band programs contributed to a FlipGrid Mixtape. In their videos, they were asked to perform something they love to play and share why music is important in their lives. The Mixtape includes three 5th grade students, two 6th grade students, two 7th grade students, and two 8th grade students. Click here to view it.
