6th Grade Composers

Our sixth grade orchestra students had a special guest! Rachel Hsieh, cellist with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, visited their class to discuss the University of New Orleans Lott Quartet's performance of Daniel Bernard Roumain's String Quartet No. 5, "Parks" - dedicated to Civil Rights pioneer, Rosa Parks. From here, our Ursuline girls will compose their own music for someone who inspires them.
