Garfield Elementary students shared their growing musical talents at an end of the year concert held May 16 at the Kansas City Public School elementary school.
This has been a partnership between the LINC Caring Communities initiative at the school and the well-regarded music education program based on a successful model developed in Los Angeles.
Harmony Project KC is a free, research-based youth development and mentoring program for underserved children, using music as the vehicle to keep them safe, in school, and improve academic performance.
The well-attended Garfield concert featured students playing recorders, flutes, clarinets and other musical instruments.
This is the first time Harmony KC has offered its program in a school.
The musical instruction was provided by Gloria Britez-Scolari and Marissa LoNigro of Harmony Project KC.
Danielle Small is the LINC site coordinator. Doug White the school principal.
