NEWS Capital City Weekly JUNEAU - Glacier Valley Elementary kicked off its new El Sistema inspired program - Juneau, Alaska Music Matters (JAMM) - with two evenings of community "paper violin" building last week. Kindergarten students and parents joined JAMM teachers to create cardboard replicas of violins, which students will then "play" and learn on for the first several weeks of this in-school orchestral program before graduating to their "real" violins.

Youth orchestra program launched with 'Paper Violin Night' at Glacier Valley
