On March 11, in recognition of Music In Our Schools Month,
Tor Hyams and David Scharff brought performers
Isaac Hayes and Rosanna Arquette to Capitol Hill to
bring awareness of the importance of musical education to Congress.
There were one-on-one sit-downs with Congress members, and a party for Congressional staffers where Isaac, Rosanna, Tor and David joined kids in a drum circle, and were serenaded by the Anne Beers Boys Choir, singing a rousing version of the song "A World of Happiness"
