Music to Their Ears

On April 6, 2018 our Boyle Heights 5th Grade Dreamer Scholars had the opportunity to hear from traveling music students from the Bosque School in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  These students were in town to perform at events around Los Angeles, and they found time to stop by the school and talk to our students about music, school, and even demonstrating how to use the instruments.  The were introduced to different musical groupings, learning about the differences between strings and wind instruments as well as hearing about the different voices that make up the choir.  Then the 5th graders got to hear a live performance from the visiting high schoolers.  Thank you Bosque School students and Joanna Hart for spending your time with us.  And thank you to our board member, Christiane Cuse, for arranging this special treat!
