Benton Elementary teacher raises money to bring Grammy-winning musical group to Neosho

News

A Benton Elementary School teacher is raising funds for a Grammy-winning musical group to come and perform in the Four States.

Cassandra Carnahan is on a mission to bring the Latin Grammy Award-winning music duo “Uno, Dos, Tres Andres” to Neosho. “Uno, Dos Tres Andres” is a bilingual children’s music group that teaches children and their families about language, math, geography and the arts.

Carnahan partnered with a donation organization to fund the performance, but is asking for your help to make it feesable.

The duo plans to perform five concerts in late April.

“This gives a chance for all students to see a portion of the world in their space, in their community, and enlighten their world view and just expose them to difference languages and different cultural backgrounds,” Carnahan explained.
