"Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends." - Alphonse de Lamartine
Greetings, Wildcat families! We are so thrilled to have had two successful "Festival Wednesday" rehearsals over the last week. Over 320 students in two cohorts (we are calling them Blue and Gold because we have WILDCAT PRIDE!) from grades 5-8 were able to reunite with their friends and music teachers to rehearse in their band, chorus and orchestra ensembles. Even though that seems like a lot of students at once, we have been working within the guidelines from the CDC, the Onondaga County Department of Health, and the National Federation of High Schools to create an experience that is safe and valuable.
We asked a few students about their experience today. You can find their responses below each picture.
