The Norwood Community Orchestra visited Horizon Science Academy to give our students a musical experience they will always remember. Thanks to the orchestra, our elementary students heard live music ranging from Classical to Celtic. Some of the songs our students heard date back to the 16th century. There were even a few holiday specials played that the students already knew. The Norwood Community Orchestra also introduced our students to various stringed instruments and showed the importance of working together as a team in order to create harmony.
The Norwood Community Orchestra is a group of musicians who are alumni, students, and current or former employees of Norwood City Schools. Their goal is to provide opportunities for the community to have access to live performances of Classical music. By sharing their talents with us, they definitely accomplished their goal!
Exposing our students to orchestral music gives them the chance to gain appreciation for different types of music. We are thankful that we had this opportunity and look forward to hearing from the Norwood Community Orchestra again.
