Rosa International Middle School Earns National Music Program Award for Third Year in a Row

Rosa International Middle School has been honored, for the third year in a row, with the SupportMusic Merit Award from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. Rosa is one of only 1 percent of schools in the nation to be recognized with this prestigious award in 2017.

The SupportMusic Merit Award recognizes individual schools that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.

This award recognizes that Rosa is leading the way with music learning opportunities as outlined in the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The legislation, signed into law in December 2015 and awaiting state implementation, designates music and the arts as important elements of a well-rounded education for all children.

Rosa International Middle School music teachers Sue Mark, Jack Murtha and Scott Graser share the same vision for the music program: to offer every child a wide array of musical experiences and performance opportunities so as to broaden their understanding of and connection with music. They strive to make a connection with every child, allowing them to explore their talents and express themselves through various musical venues. The Rosa music program, under the direction of music teachers Mrs. Sue Mark, Mr. Jack Murtha and Mr. Scott Graser, boasts enrollment numbers of more than 500 in a school of 820 students. Their three bands, jazz band, two orchestras, three choruses, two a cappella groups, an Orff ensemble, recorder ensemble and large musical theater program offer students a broad choice of musical experiences. Besides the normal concert series, Rosa also features a piano recital, vocal solo night, small-group chamber night and multiple community performances throughout the year. Congratulations to all who work to help the Rosa music program thrive!
