The Orange Grove Chorus will perform at the upcoming conference, Partners in Education: A Continuum of Services for ALL Children, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center on Feb. 13, in Nashville. The 30-minute program will follow the conference’s Thursday morning keynote speaker.
The Chorus members are the Center’s ambassador of music, sharing their talent and music styling throughout Chattanooga and neighboring communities, while simultaneously spreading the message we’re “not so different after all.”
Under the direction of Monty Parks, the group performs year-round for civic organizations, churches and at community events. Their recent appearances have included Very Special Arts Festival, Go!Fest, ADA Anniversary Celebration (city of Chattanooga), Who-Fest, Hamilton County’s Christmas at the Courthouse, the Tennessee Governor’s Mansion and United Way sponsored events.
Formerly known as the Special Education Conference, the three-day event is for both special and general education teachers and administrators. An estimated 2,000 guests will attend workshops, informational and educational sessions as part of the continuum of services to meet the needs of all children, under the belief that all students are general education students first.
