Florence Music Notes Winter 2016

Nutcracker Day Coming December 9!

Volunteers needed for Nutcracker Day coming Friday, December 9!

Our students at Florence will be learning about The Nutcracker Ballet by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky in December. Tchaikovsky was the most popular nineteenth-century Russian composer. He is famous for ballets, symphonies, the 1812 Overture, and the First Piano Concerto. Our studies will culminate with our Nutcracker Day Friday, Dec. 9. Many volunteers will be needed to make this day a success. Dancers from Dana’s School of Dance will present portions of the ballet for our students in the morning. We also plan to have Nutcracker Relay Races in the Gym, Story Telling in the Library, a Nutcracker Museum & Face Painting. Sign up to help on the link below or email lynda.knagg@kellerisd.net
