Today four members of the Lexington Symphony visited Pine Glen School, and put on a performance/presentation for our third grade students. This visit was in preparation for our annual field trip to hear the Lexington Symphony play at the end of the month.
The students were a wonderful audience as the musicians discussed the different families of instruments in the orchestra, how their instruments worked, and what its like to be a musician in an orchestra. They also got a taste of the kinds of music they will hear at the concert. The students also had very thoughtful questions at the end of the presentation.
We are all excited to see the concert on the 22nd!
It’s a new year, and the 4th and 5th graders are beginning to prepare for their Spring Concert! The theme for this concert is On Broadway!

Happy Thanksgiving from Room 208!
Here is a really cool tribute to the composer John Williams (a Pine Glen favorite) in anticipation of the new Star Wars movie. It’s an a cappella (no accompaniment) performance at the American Music Awards by Pentatonix that is then joined by an orchestra. Pretty cool and fun! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
