CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Wilson visited Winterfield Elementary School where he was serenaded by a group of young musical students.  The Charlotte Symphony has partnered with the school to bring music to the students through their Winterfield Residency Program.   Students from the 2nd through the fifth grade take part in the free after-school music program.

Wilson talked with members of the symphony who enjoy teaching the kids and being part of the magic that happens when the kids learn how to play their instruments.  From string to wind instruments, the students have gained an appreciation of the instruments and the music that they are learning to play.  Some of past students have gone on to be a part of the Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestra.
