Bethel Park H.S. Residency=New Song

bphs-morning_sickness.galleryThere was a Post-Gazette article (in the South edition) about my residency April 14-18 at Bethel Park High School. I worked with 3 different groups of students, and they wrote songs and poems, which they performed on Friday during an all-day coffee house-type event at which each student performed their original work 4 or 5 times for different groups of their peers.
As last year (when I set the e.e. cummings poem to music which I still perform), I wrote a new song during the week, the lyrics to which came out of a writing exercise that I did with the students, who really did some great work and came up with very creative things.
Thanks to:   Julia, Andy, Andrew, Laruen, Robert, Zach, Zach, Joe, Sarah, Ashley, Jordan, Max, Brennan, Jess, Emma, Ashley, Blair, Vickie, Valerie, Jayna, Florence, Laurel, Andrea, Alyssa, Kerry, Cameron (apologies for misspelling any names), and also to Mr. Youngs for making it happen!
