Albany -- Teachers from Dougherty County taught the community a little lesson on music.

Music faculty from the Dougherty County School System put on the fourth annual "Spirit of Chautauqua" program at Albany State University.

This year's event showcased talented percussionists, singers, pianists and even a jazz ensemble.     

"We've got middle school, high school and elementary school teachers all represented here.  Chautauqua was an appropriate name for it, since we are all teachers, and this is an educational program.  And we're trying to educate the community about what we can do, and we want to entertain also," said Southside Middle School Teacher, Theresa Bell.

The event was hosted by Maestro Claire Fox Hillard of the Albany Symphony Orchestra and our own Karla Heath-Sands.
