Music Notes for Winter 2013

5th Grade Music Program: Don’t miss the performance of “The Quilt Speaks! A Journey along the Underground Railroad” presented by the 5th graders on Wednesday, February 6th at 1:30 and 7:00 PM. The students are excited to share this program with you, which has been a musical, historical, and artistic collaboration. Thank you to Mrs. Schumer for creating an art project for 5th grade students that ties into the performance and thank you to Mrs. Smucker for making connections in social studies. Thanks also 4th grade teachers, Mrs. Wharton and Miss Rankin, for laying the foundational knowledge in social studies last year that has allowed these students to make wonderful cross-curricular connections through this performance!

February by the Fire: Great music is coming to your public library! Spend the end of a weary winter week in the Old Worthington Library’s “living room” for February by the Fire, a series of Friday afternoon concerts sponsored by the Friends Foundation of Worthington Libraries and coordinated in partnership with the Jazz Arts Group. All concerts begin at 4:00pm and the lineup includes:

o February 1: Dan Rowan, piano
o February 8: Tim Cummiskey, guitar
o February 15: Delyn Christian, singer/songwriter
o February 22: Molly Winters, singer/songwriter, with folk trio the Salty Caramels

A New Face in the Music Room: Please help me welcome Otterbein Student Teacher, Bethany Stang, to Bluffsview!

Miss Stang will be with us from the end of January to the first part of May.
