Ricardo Aguiar’s winning design for the 2018 Musical Scores T-shirt design.

Each year, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion rewards area students who have met goals with a special event. Musical Scores forms part of The Pavilion’s educational outreach programs.

Musical Scores has grown from serving 200 students its first year to 6,000 students and teachers. The program primarily serves academically at-risk, middle school students. Students earn the privilege to attend the event after successfully displaying model behavior and achieving specific scholastic goals. Once the students have achieved their goals, or “musical scores,” The Pavilion rewards them with a free performance.

Street Beat will provide the entertainment this year. Students will enjoy a kinetic, maximum energy explosion of urban rhythm and dance. The group uses junk, household items and found objects for drums and percussion along with modern street dance.

The Pavilion’s T-shirt design competition is open to everyone taking part in the program. At Carver HS, several graphic art students submitted work for consideration. This year’s winning design went to the magnet school’s Ricardo Aguiar. He and his digital media classmates will represent Carver HS on stage.

Students attending the Musical Scores event will receive a free lunch. They will also receive the complimentary T-shirts with Ricardo’s winning design.

The Pavilion will honor Ricardo at the event.

Well done!
