Feb 2, 2022: President’s Message
Dear members, fans, and friends of Trinity River Blues Society,
There are some amazing things happening for Trinity River Blues Society organization.
We are proud to announce that TRBS has partner with Big Thoughts to bring “Blues in The Schools” starting with the Dallas School District first.
There will be two meet and greet musical performances dates TBA starting in February 2022.
The official kick-off will be March 2022 after Spring Break. More information to come.
What is Blues in the Schools?
Blues in the Schools offers the opportunity for students of all ages to engage in multidisciplinary, whole-language learning using the study of music, math, language arts, history, anthropology, and sociology in a hands-on approach celebrating creative self-expression. By bringing the blues genre into the classroom, students are exposed to these traditional subjects, while breaking down racial barriers and opening dialogue about cultural diversity.
Trinity River Blues Society is committed to preserving blues heritage, the biographies of the people who formed this music, and the cultural history behind their personal stories. We are mission driven to also ensure the future of this uniquely American art form by expanding awareness of the music across all lines. Taking Blues music into schools’ systems, via Blues in the Schools, provides a direct line to keep this great American genre both relevant and thriving.
It is hard to fathom the tremendous growth and accomplishments of TRBS in such a short period of time.
This would not be possible without the support of our community, members, volunteers, and a passionate and committed board members.
