Music Tells the Story

Music Tells the Story is an expanding project to provide music education and enrichment for elementary school students.  Composer/songwriter/performer Ayala Asherov-Kalus works with students at Burns Elementary School to turn their poems and stories into real compositions played by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.
