When both groups arrived we passed out a piece called Dark Adventure by Ralph Ford. Neither group, high school or elementary school, had ever seen or heard the piece before. We started with sight reading, then rehearsed a little (about 25 minutes!) and then played a performance of the piece! See the video below.
After we learned the song together, the high schoolers played a March from their concert last night for the 5th graders. There were some 5th grade jaws on the floor!
Thank you so much to Mr. Pinkerton and the high schoolers for coming to play with us. This is an experience we'll never forget!
