Congratulations, Mr. Petit!

Stevenson Elementary Music teacher Brian Petit was surprised when he recently received the 2023 Music Educator Award in the elementary school category during a school-wide community meeting.  Petit was nominated by his former principal and now Chief Academic Officer Angie Ullum. 

Recipients of this award in the central Ohio area are music educators who: 

  • Make a lasting difference in the lives of students of all abilities and backgrounds
  • Routinely go "above and beyond the call of duty" by extending efforts beyond the classroom
  • Make a significant impact on their community through music education
  • Inspire students to reach appropriately high levels of musical understanding and ability
  • Demonstrate longevity in the field of music education by their many years of work
  • Instill a lifelong appreciate of music in their students

The Columbus Symphony's Music Educator Award program has honored 90 central Ohio music educators and arts advocates since its inception in 1997. The recipients of the 2023 Music Educator Awards will be honored at a celebration event preceding the Columbus Symphony concert on Sunday, May 7, at the Ohio Theatre. Past winners will also be recognized and honored. The CSO is a proud supporter of all music educators who go above and beyond for the students of central Ohio.

Four awards are given to exemplary music educators in the categories of elementary, secondary, private/community-based, and lifetime achievement.  Congratulations, Mr. Petit!
