The Kohler Performing Arts Organization (PAO)
welcomes you to PAO’s Greatest Hits! Our mission is
to create a collaborative relationship with the school

of Public Instruction has recognized the Kohler Public
School Music Department as a model music program.
Students perform at a variety of community functions

educational activities, including a biennial performance
trip and summer camps.
