Knoxville Symphony Orchestra Visits Kindergarten

 

The KSO was brought to DES  by the Kappa Kappa Gamma Alumni Association.  (KKG is the sorority that Mrs. Hungate was in college.)   Their philanthropy is RIF. They wanted to send the Story Time quartet to a local (Knoxville area) school as part of their philanthropy events and chose Dandridge as the lucky school!  The alumni association also provided each student in my class with a copy of the book, Better Than Cookies! As Good As Cake! This book is written by Stacy Nickell Miller (one of the KSO's cellist).  

The students listened to 3 stories (read by a narrator) in which the quartet (2 violins, a cello, & a viola) played music to accompany what was happening in the story. 

The students were also allowed to hold an instrument!  It was a wonderful experience for our Kindergarten students!
