In preparation for the event, Stephen Schmidt, Principal violist of the Williamsburg Sinfonia, member of the Richmond Symphony, and VCU viola teacher, visited Maggie Walker and assisted the strings players.

Dr. Michael Davison, Professor of Music at the University of Richmond, and his 17 piece UR Jazz Ensemble, visited the Maggie Walker Jazz Band I, Jazz Band II, and Jazz Improv classes on Feb. 28. Maggie Walker students were treating to a performance and then played side by side with the college musicians. Dr. Davison and his students provided instruction in the art of musicianship and jazz ensemble performance.
