The Acadiana Symphony Orchestra is one of only two symphonies in the country that is partnered with a Conservatory (School) of Music. ASO&C's professional music education faculty created Do-Re-ME! (DRM), a patent-pending, INNOV8 Award-winning curriculum to lay down a solid foundation for young learners to achieve academic success early on. DRM is an arts-integrated curriculum that uses music to reinforce comprehension in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
