Fifteen students and sixteen instruments went to Maumee High School Performing Arts Center for the all-day Northwest Ohio Honors Orff Music Festival.
Kids in grades 3-5 from all over NW Ohio gathered together, and in groups, worked with master Orff music teachers, and a guest conductor. They experimented with movement, playing xylophones, recorders and small percussion, accompanying songs, improvising melodies in Lydian (!) and shared 6 songs as a 175 voice choir for friends and families. A big day! We had a pizza lunch and met a lot of other kids who love music class. Mrs. Huenemann was an assistant in the "Stars" group and had a great time.
