4th Grade Musicians Accompany Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra

November 2011

Wednesday, November 9th, ten FCWC students performed in concert with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra during the Young People’s Concert at West Jefferson High School Auditorium. David Torns was the conductor.

They performed the “New World Symphony” by Anonin Dvorak on recorders—plastic, flute-like, woodwind instruments used by many band directors for beginner band classes. Fingering is similar to other woodwind instruments. These instruments are presently being employed in the best elementary level General Music Class curriculums, including here at FCWCS.

These talented musicians are members of Mrs. T. Daigle’s 4th Grade Class. Chasiti, Derricka, Herchele, Quincy, Joshua, Raheem, Ivan, Zhakiay, Jared, and Rondell are learning to play the recorder under the direction of Vocal Music teacher Ms. K. Wright.
