The halls were filled with the sound of music…violin music, that is! Our class had a unique privilege this last week to listen to Tricia Park and Taylor Morris play the violin for us. So, how did we luck out and get to have them come and play for us? Well, Taylor Morris is really good friends with one of the parents in our class. Talk about knowing people in the right places!
Their presentation was so entertaining and informative for the students.
Take a look:
One of the great things about their visit was that we were learning about fables the same week they visited. Without knowing this, they played Peter and the Wolf written by Sergei Prokofiev. This provided a great connection between the text and the world for us. An interesting facts about Sergei Prokofiev is that he also wrote the composition for Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet.
Afterwards, we wrote thank you cards for them. They enjoyed reading them and even posted a picture of them on Facebook.
