CNN SERIES – American Dynasties: The Kennedy’s
This series airs every Sunday evening at 9pm. One of our festival pieces, Elegy for a Young American, was written in 1964 in response to President Kennedy’s assassination. To help us interpret our music, we have been learning about the life, times, and contributions of JFK. If you have time to watch, it may help you add deeper meaning to our performance.
WE HAVE 5 REHEARSALS LEFT (!):
- Are you able to play the details, at the correct tempo?
- Can you focus on balance and intonation? Or, are you occupied only with playing the correct notes, rhythms, and tempo?
- Can you perform your music with meaning and emotion?
- Are you proud of your personal performance?
I hope you enjoyed working hard on our music this weekend, the last weekend before our trip. Mrs. Kluag can’t wait to work with you on Monday!
