FALL FIELD TRIP
Our students attended two shows at The Egg - Center for the performing arts in Albany, New York. Latin Rhythms , which is an ensemble, representing talented musicians from many regions. This first show took the students on a journey of music from various Latin-American countries through the exciting, popular, and diverse musical traditions of these countries. The students had the opportunity to learn and listen to different rhythms from Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Peru, Argentina and other important Latin musical traditions.
The other show the students attended was Viva Flamenco. The students learned about the origins of its rhythm and the intensity of flamenco through the use of staccato footwork, palmas, guitar playing, singing and dancing.
Since the New York State museum is near by, we made a short stop before we took the bus back to school and the students got to look around the museum and ride in the carousel which is 150 years old!
In this new era of globalization, effective communication and cross-cultural understanding are key to success.
Our mission is to guide students in their exploration of foreign languages and cultures, thereby fostering curiosity, love, and respect for diversity and a deep understanding for the value of inclusivity.
