Our Winter Concert

February 4th, 2011 · No Comments

One of the special aspects of the Bedford Schools is the incredible music program.  Thursday night we had out winter concert, featuring our orchestra, band, and chorus.  Not many elementary schools can say they have all three.  The students did a great job as they showcased their skills for the appreciative soldout crowd of proud parents.  Also, some special guests made an appearance during the grade 5 orchestra performance.  The video gives you a sense of the fun evening.

I showed parts of this video to the Lane teachers in September to get us thinking about creativity and its role in students’ education.

It runs about 19 minutes, but I guarantee, at a minumum, this will make you think about your education and your child’s.  What do you think?
