Lower School assemblies are often focused on music, including the Composer of the Month series and other topics taught by Lower School music teacher Lucy Warner. Two days before Halloween, the Pre-primary boys performed their Halloween song for the entire assemblage of Lower School boys and teachers, putting their hearts and body motions into a “spirited” performance!
Immediately after, Ms. Warner showed a video of cartoon skeletons dancing to French composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Danse Macabre (Dance of Death),” which the boys learned about in class. Ms. Warner advised the audience to listen to the harp and other major instruments being played.
Finally, the boys watched a second video showing creative ways to carve pumpkins. Needless to say, watching the boys and the videos was a rousing way to start the morning!
