Local News

Some young musicians in Bettendorf are adjusting to learning their instruments in the pandemic.

Not only that — they’re performing.

During the first quarter, students of Bettendorf Middle School’s Online Learning Academy have been working on a virtual ensemble project with the fifth grade band.

They plan to play their first concert around Thanksgiving, as well as a second one in December.

“We are incredibly proud of the work they put into this project,” said Celeste Miller, Communications Director for the Bettendorf Community School District.
