Elder’s Wisdom, Children’s Song
This is an intergenerational music presentation that pairs community elders with fourth- and fifth-grade students and guest musicians to create a life story and original song. Individual elders spend time in the classroom telling their life stories for the students. A community concert is presented featuring the classes with their elder and the performance of their song. The SFPE also hosts a reception following the performance. This project involves 125 Creekside Elementary students from five classes.
