JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Delta Symphony Orchestra and the Treble Clef Music Club held a concert Sunday in Jonesboro. 

The concert featured special needs musicians who were backed by the Orchestra. 

Music composed by musicians who struggled with disabilities was also featured. 

“I think the audience is responding so well to these musicians,” said Susan Johnson, Board President.  “I think they are amazed at the talent that they have and how they’re sharing it with them.”

“The musicians are so inspiring,” said Barbara Jimenez, executive director of the Delta Symphony Orchestra. “When they sing from the heart it spills out down the stage, and it creeps into the audience, and I just think it gives everyone chills."
