Upcoming School Performances
Artist in Residence - elizabeth! Trombone and vocal artist specializing in jazz and improvisation, presented by ACT. Update - We had a wonderful time improvising in so many ways using our voices and instruments. Friday afternoon's show featured the students performing their improvs backed by an impeccably smooth jazz combo (not to mention the display of elizabeth!'s vocal and trombone virtuosity). That's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity even for many veteran musicians! Thank you, Arts Council of Tamworth, for making such opportunities possible. Click on the ACT link below for pictures.
K. A. B. Annual Variety Show - Friday, December 9. Sign up sheets are in the office and on the Music Room bulletin board. Sign-up sheets need to be turned in to me by Nov. 18.
