Treasures in Literature and Song: Old and New will focus on a variety of ways to integrate literature into an Orff Schulwerk based music class. Please bring a soprano recorder and, if possible, a pot, pan, pt lid or other kitchen utensil. Wear comfortable clothes, as the workshop includes movement, and ends with a folk dance session.
