Baruch Whitehead's Post-Sabbatical Project: The Peace Cantata for Elementary Students will be presented this Friday, June 14th, 2019 at noon in Ford Hall.

Over one hundred fifth grade students from Beverly J. Martin, Enfield, Caroline and South Hill elementary schools analyzed this question using vocal performance, music making, interpretive dance, art and poetry. Whitehead collaborated with ICSD music teachers, Ross Mizrahi, Dorothy Preston and Nicole Temple on the music for the concert.

 ICSD art teachers Ana Goldsmith, Marsha Accera, Kate Praisner and Dianne Lynn worked with fifth grade students to create prints for t-shirts worn by students at the concert and art work displayed before and during the program.  

 ICSD fifth grade teachers, Joyce Wigsten, Ann Kolodji, Robert Graham, Mike Cecere, Ryan Conklin, Danielle Gardner, Allison Kootsikas, Micheryl Blake, Kimberly Blackmur, Carolyn Belle and Kimberly Lazzaro all participated in the project.  Many teachers engaged students in projects or discussions where student’s personal connections to music and art were explored through poetry, writing or art.

Choreographer, G’Quan Booker will lead Enfield and BJM students in choreography performed of Circle of Life from the Lion's King.


The Emerging Artist Series: is set of Music and Art learning experiences that analyzes essential questions connected to standards through field performances.  The work is intended to help students develop an emerging sense of themselves as artists through field performance exploration of essential questions that cultivate and further cultural responsiveness.
