On April 15th, our 4th graders will be traveling to the Frauenthal Theater in Muskegon for the West Michigan Symphony Link-Up Concert. This concert is a great opportunity for the students to listen to and perform with a professional orchestra. They will be singing and playing recorder along with the orchestra while sitting in the audience with hundreds of other 4th graders from west Michigan.

Here are both classes playing and singing one of the songs we will perform at the concert, called "Simple Melody". The students learned that this song is in AABA form, major tonality, and duple meter. They also individually tested on this song to earn the purple belt (the A section) and the blue belt (the B section).
