2021 Eagle Awards Highlights

The National Music Council honored iconic a cappella group Take 6, and in an unprecedented move, presented the prestigious American Eagle Award to all music teachers in the nation for their extraordinary service during the pandemic at the organization’s 37th annual ceremony on Thursday, July 15 at Summer NAMM in Nashville. The honors are presented each year in recognition of those who have made long-term contributions to American musical culture, to showcase the ideal of music education for all children, and to support the protection of creators’ rights both locally and internationally.
