We believe that music has a special mission in a world torn with anxiety and doubt, dissension and fear; in a world in danger of being dehumanized and disillusioned by materialism, mechanization and skepticism. The Six-Point Goal of the Music Educators National Conference: core of the Golden Anniversary resolutions adopted in St. Louis, 1956: #5.In International Relations: To give to and receive from peoples in other countries, with resulting benefits to music education, as well as to the breadth and depth of individual sympathy and understanding.
