Ensembles resume -- Next Show in March!
Both Ensembles also resumed this week. As before Orff Ensemble practices are in the morning on Tuesday and Recorder Ensemble meets on Friday. We began working on new material for our Spring show. With two new pieces from Music for Children (the five volume bible of Orff material) in Orff ensemble and a wonderful medieval Hungarian dance, "Ungaresca," in Recorder.
We also spent a little time experimenting with a blues improvisation (pictured) using "Mannish Boy" by Muddy Waters. Should be an interesting Spring show.
