Listening Ears

Inspired by Georgia Dickie’s sculpture called “Listening Ears” that’s outside on our JLPS schoolyard, my students and I re-wrote the words of Bruno Mars’s “Talking to the Moon” to instead be “Opening our listening ears. Hearing sounds and all voices.” 60 Grade 2-5s in Towers School Singers and 30 Grade 6-8s in Towers School Band (what a huge team of musicians!) learned to sing and play this tune and layer it in 7-part harmony! We performed in a circle around the sculpture and surrounded by the rest of the JLPS students.
