Day 84 / 104 - Montclaire Sting Quartet
Every spring Classical Conversations Foundations students spend six-weeks studying the orchestra. Often, we try to arrange at least one field trip to see a symphony during this time. This spring, we opted to host a Quartet-in-Residence from the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra. A large part of the quartet's mission is to bring classical music to children throughout West Virginia.
The Montclaire String Quartet played delightfully for our homeschool community on Monday. The musicians educated us with a wonderful, up-close introduction to the string instrument family, covering many baseline musical and cross-disciplinary concepts.
