Northwood singers in sync, online, right on time

PITTSBORO — A little something to usher you into autumn, it's the Northwood High School Chamber Singers with a virtual performance of "The Road Home," under the direction of Northwood choral director Matthew Hanson. 

It's another example of why Chatham County Schools for the second straight year earned a Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation. 

“The award celebrates districts and schools that are working hard to ensure that music education is a part of a well-rounded education available to all students,” said Mary Luehrsen, The NAMM Foundation’s executive director. 

The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit organization supported in part by the National Association of Music Merchants. The foundation advances active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving and public-service programs.
