Teacher receives Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award
Congratulations to John S. Battle Band Director, Mark Collins, for being among those selected to receive the 2013 Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award. The Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award is presented biennially to fifty music educators selected for their outstanding accomplishments teaching music in the nation’s public schools. From a pool of nearly 300 nominees representing 45 states, a panel of music professionals selected this year’s 50 Distinguished Music Educators. The selected educators hail from 32 different states, including the first ever Symposium attendees from Kansas and Mississippi.
Award recipients attend, all expenses paid, the Symposium on Music in Schools, which is held every two years at the Yale School of Music as part of its Music in Schools Initiative. The honors will be conferred at the Symposium’s Awards Dinner on Saturday, June 8. Anne Midgette, the classical music critic of The Washington Post who has also written for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Opera News, and other publications, as well as co- authoring two books, will give the keynote address. Congratulations Mr. Collins!
