Midday Music Playlist for 01/04/2011

A tribute to the patience and faith of school music teachers, in fond memory my orchestra teacher from sixth through twelfth grade, Frank Mazurek, who passed away December 31. Eight of today's selections are pieces I played under his baton during formative years. Hug a music teacher today. - Sarah
