For the 4th Graders, Music class this week was a field trip to the Nashville Symphony for their "Dances through the Centuries" program. Prior to the field trip, the 4th graders had a special assembly with the symphony's french horn player, Patrick Walle (yes, my husband!) and learn more about the orchestra and ask questions. This was a great opportunity for students to build excitement and learn more about what to look for in the beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center located in downtown Nashville.
The symphony concert included dance music spanning 200 years from all different cultures. In addition to the beautiful music, the students were mesmerized by professional dancers who really showcased the unique style of each piece. Thank you Nashville Symphony for a wonderful and memorable music field trip!!
