To those who helped ‘bring the Noize’
The Juneau Symphony extends heartfelt thanks to Holland America for sponsoring children’s musician Doctor Noize on his trip to Juneau.
Doctor Noize performed two concerts with the Juneau Symphony on Jan. 20: a free school assembly concert for all 4th and 5th grade students in the Juneau School District and a pay-as-you-can family concert in the evening called Doctor Noize Goes Bananas. Over 900 children and 350 adults attended the performances, and a lucky few were even called up on stage to sing, dance and “chomp” along with the music.
“Dr. Noize generated fantastic enthusiam for music and I can say that every student walked away not only amused, but genuinely interested in learning more about music.” said Glacier Valley teacher, Nancy Peel.
The Symphony was very pleased to have Doctor Noize join the orchestra and hopes to bring him back next year. They especially would like to thank Holland America, Exxon-Mobil, HAP Alaska Yukon, and First Student for making the performances possible.
