In-School Tours

Each fall, the KGS concert soloist joins Dr. Bruce Polay to tour elementary schools throughout Galesburg and the surrounding area. Bruce and the soloist perform and answer questions for students at each school. This program inspires students by making music and musicians accessible for everyone. This year’s soloist is David Washburn.
