One-hundred-six students in the Kirkwood Symphony Orchestra travelled to New York, NY to play in Carnegie Hall* Mar. 3-6. Patrick Jackson, Symphonic Orchestra conductor, has taught in KSD for 26 years and will retire at the end of this year. Jackson has taken the Symphonic Orchestra to play in NY three other times in the last 26 years and says he was very proud of how the orchestra performed. “It was, hands down, one of the most moving concerts I have ever done in my teaching career,” Jackson said.
