Our fourth graders submitted these two videos to Carnegie Hall last week. Our assignment was to invent new lyrics for the Aaron Copland classic, "I Bought Me a Cat." If we are chosen, a film crew will be sent to video our class, and our school's video will be presented onscreen at the Carnegie Hall LinkUP! concert in May 2011. In a few weeks, we are also auditioning to be the representative school onstage at Carnegie Hall with the Orchestra of St. Luke's. EMS has been onstage for the last 8 years! And we are known as a school with enthusiastic, well-prepared students with high standards and lots of musicality.
Here's an extra video; these fourth graders were practicing for the Talent Show.
