Composers Visit 7th Grade
Ben Birkbeck and creative partners Andy Happel-violin and Devon Colella- Cello of the Aeterna Trio visited the 7th Grade Language Arts Classes today to share the inspiration behind their creative process of composing music. The messages of not being afraid, practicing and trusting others to help came out loud and clear. Here is one clip of a piece they created "on the fly" during their time with us. Thank you so much for your passion, inspiration and time with our kids!
