In response to this disaster, Dr. Woodard conceived of and led the humanitarian effort Orchestra of the Hills, a partnership between West Virginia State University and the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, to form an orchestra modeled after Solti's World Orchestra for Peace. The goal for the effort was to perform a concert to raise money for three high school music programs affected by the flooding. Dr. Woodard served as served as Music Director/Conductor for the orchestra and chorus. His effort culminated in an outdoor concert at Charleston, West Virginia's riverfront amphitheater which raised monetary and instrument donations totaling over $16,000 for three West Virginia schools. The success of this effort has resulted in the annual Orchestra of the Hills and Chorus concert in Charleston, WV. Dr. Woodard continues to serve as Music Director/Conductor of this yearly event. Dr. Woodard earned Bachelors and Masters degrees in Music Education from Marshall University in Huntington, WV. In 2014, he earned the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Boston University, where his dissertation explored the importance of the Musin method in performance and music education.
