We Shall Overcome

January 22, 2009

A couple of my students saw on the local news that twenty-six young violin students from Harlem have been invited to perform at the Children’s Inaugural Ball in Washington D.C.  You might recognize the violinists of Opus 118 and their teacher, Roberta Guaspari, from the movie, Music of the Heart.

Best of luck to the talented and hardworking string students from Opus 118!  You are an inspiration to string programs everywhere.

Members of the WI Chamber Orchestra also performed for our very own celebration in the newly refurbished WI auditorium.  We played “We Shall Overcome” to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and to celebrate the inauguration our new president, Barack Obama.
