17th Annual Fred Ingold Elementary Music Festival
In celebration of National Music In Our Schools Month, second graders from Wingate Elementary attended the 17th annual Fred Ingold Elementary Music Festival at Forest Hills High School on Thursday, March 19th. The festival featured performances by the Forest Hills High School Band and the Southwest Middle School String Ensemble (Charlotte, NC). In addition to concert performances by both ensembles, students were given demonstrations on each instrument. The demonstrations tie into their classroom learning about sound and instrument families, integrating both science and music objectives for second grade. The festival is organized each year by UCPS elementary music teachers, and is funded by a grant from the Union County Community Arts Council.
