IRC Grades 1-6 students are (almost) done composing their pieces for our May 2nd concert entitled, Self-Composed. It will be an evening of all original, student-written music! 6:00-6:45 will be grades 1-3 performing and 6:45-7:00 will be grades 4-6. We are working tirelessly. See above.
Thanks to fellow educator, Doug Friesen, some of my students are composing a song with Royal Wood!
Also, disco balls are fun.
Ms Greenwood organized another fabulous French Cafe and the Grade 5/6s and I provided the musical entertainment. Guitars, ukuleles, mallet instruments, and recorders playing French melodies. Magnifique!
Our spring concert is still in the “vision” stage but one thing’s for sure, IRC students are going to compose original music for the event. All of it. Grade 3-6 students have written melodies and formed bands. Their “rock band” practise time runs into recesses and the hallway. 100% engagement.
IRC’s Creative Choir’s video has been submitted. We’ll find out the winner by Dec 15th. Check us out! Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qbykvyXgAQ
