On Monday, students in Kindergarten through Fourth Grade had the privilege of a visit from a professional violinist. Dan Galat plays for the Columbus Philharmonic and the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra and he is moving to Chicago to play for the Chicago Civic Orchestra. For the students, he played selections of Brahms, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky, along with some fiddle music. The students had the chance to ask questions and learn more about how the violin works and about the life of a professional musician. For some of the students, this was their first experience with live instrumental music. We are looking forward to all of the new musical experiences the students will continue to share this year!
