Today the Carnival Band performed for one of its favorite audiences: children. Over one hundred kids from grades 1 to 5 danced, sang, and shook the auditorium for over an hour in the small east Vancouver school of Henderson Annex Elementary.
This unique environment allowed the band to add short but engaging lessons in music history and performance to its regular repertoire of fun and funky tunes from around the world. The children responded enthusiastically, asking to hold instruments, play notes, and clap out rhythms of their own.
The band is grateful to the school’s administration for the opportunity to reach the leaders (and musicians) of tomorrow.
