Virtually all Texas public schools are experiencing difficult financial situations. The leadership of the Center for Educator Development in Fine Arts (CEDFA) is aware that many fine arts programs have encountered reductions in resources and personnel in addition to the elimination of entire programs.
To spread the word pertaining to the critical importance of Fine Arts education in our schools, CEDFA has commissioned an inspirational and supportive video, which includes the Austin Youth Orchestra program. Please view, enjoy, and share the video posted on the homepage of the CEDFA website via the link provided below with everyone - friends, colleagues, and administrators. Inform and remind your community that fine arts education is always a sound investment for our students.
In the spring of 2006, the Austin Youth Orchestra program was featured on a promotional video by DOWNTOWN: As Austin As It Gets™. DOWNTOWN is a local production company that highlights the people, places, stories, and situations that make Austin unique. The various DOWNTOWN video series introduce viewers to Austin and encourage those who visit, live, work and play in the city to really explore all of the opportunities that Austin offers.
DOWNTOWN, produced by the Downtown Austin Alliance, Action Figure, and KLRU-TV, began airing on KLRU-TV in 2005 as a series of 30-minute programs. This thought-provoking and educational series has quickly become one of the most watched shows on Austin's Public Television Station.
