It was a special day for St. Augustine High School American Music students in Trey Brewer’s classes. Dr. Ron Pen brought his vast knowledge and down home manner as he took us to the Cumberland plateau for a journey through music history and culture. He drew connections with the students’ community and culture and had them playing along on bass, guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle. Thanks to EMMA Concert Association Jack Page Projects for their continued support of music education. That is Arts Program Specialist Antonio Scott with Trey Brewer and Ron. — with Joanne Kress Ross Everett, Antonio Carlos Scott, Trey Brewer and Ron Pen.
