Link Up 2013

On Tuesday, the 4th graders traveled to Muskegon to attend the Link Up concert with the West Michigan Symphony Orchestra. They got to sing, play recorder, clap, and stomp along with the orchestra while sitting in the audience with hundreds of other 4th graders. I took videos of three of the pieces at the concert. The first one is called "In C", and it is a piece made up entirely of ostinatos (repeated patterns). Our students were assigned ostinato number 4 prior to the concert. The second piece you will hear is called "Simple Melody", in which the students played recorders and sang. The last piece I filmed was called "Drumlines" and featured the Mona Shores High School Drumline. The students echoed patterns played by the snare drum and bass drum by clapping their hands and stomping their feet.
