After an exhilarating couple of days at Land Between the Lakes, the fifth grade class had an amazing opportunity to share their talents with their good friends at the Tom Joy Elementary School. Throughout the year, fifth graders travel to Tom Joy in North East Nashville to pair up with a second grade reading buddy. On their last visit instead of reading books to their buddies they put on a concert showing what they had learned this year in band. Ensworth students showed their buddies how sound is made on their instrument and how to draw a correlation between reading books and reading music.
“This was a great opportunity for the the fifth graders to show their buddies at Tom Joy what they do at the school,” said band director Linden Lantz. “It was great to see all of the kids mingling together, looking at and touching instruments they might not have the opportunity to.”
If you would like to hear this music and experience it for yourself the band’s annual spring concert will be Thursday, May 15th at 6:30 p.m. in Frist Hall. It will be a great event!
