Our youngest scholars enjoyed a musical concert experience this past week. In preparation for their visit with members of the Newark Symphony, Anais-Skye Clarke-Avignant, a Link 7th grader was invited to play violin during one of the kindergarten music classes. Anais introduced students to her magnificent violin and made beautiful music for the youngsters. They learned about concert etiquette and, for many, participated in their first symphony experience!
On Friday, April 22nd, as scholars dressed up for the concert, and walked down the street to the Newark School of the Arts. Students were introduced to beautiful musicians and their melodic music. They listened to percussion instruments, various flutes, and a clarinet. Students sang rounds, clapped, and stomped to the rhythm of some of the music and listened to some familiar favorites like Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and even Baby Shark! Thanks to the Newark School of the Arts for arranging this experience for our little scholars.
