Music in the Arts
Of course music is in the arts! Even on our fire drills we have what I like to call one of the essential elements of life (as are all the arts) as our Music Director, who is headed to the All-State performance in southern Maine today with the Choral Director and a dozen of our excellent student musicians, plays for us on the "pink guitar". He and I frequently have morning duty together and find ourselves performing mini concerts for the students as they prepare for school. Our most recent was a medley of Elvis tunes including Don't Be Cruel, Heartbreak Hotel and Hound Dog. We have no plans to take our show on the road at this time, so our audience is restricted, although there are plans in the works to do some recording next year.
