The Orchestra Song

Remember this weird little exercise from music class, circa second grade? Everybody sang something different, and yet when it was all put together, you had a harmony. In theory. When our class sang it, it sounded like a barnyard invaded by a wolf.

“The clarinet, the clarinet goes doodle-doodle-doodle-doodle-det…” We never got it right. But this video is what it was supposed to sound like.

    That was great! Someone did some nice composing and those young ladies did some very credible singing.

    It’s a very odd coincidence, but I just got off the phone with a music buddy and we were talking about introducing music to kids. He has an opportunity to lease some space and hopes to create a place where music can be performed in a nice atmosphere. I suggested to him that having some inexpensive instruments that children can try out might open the door to a great family event and he concurred. I hope it comes to pass.
