Last year my class and I participated in the Big Apple Circus Art Contest. The Big Apple Circus sent us lots of valuable resources in order to research the history of the circus. One of my fifth grade students said to me "I've never been to a circus before." I welled up with tears. I could not believe that by eleven years old this child did not have the opportunity to experience the circus. It was then that I decided I would make it my job to make sure my students were taking field trips. I succeeded by taking them on eight field trips last year in this great city of ours. One donor through funded a trip for my fifth grade class to visit the American Museum of Natural History to see the Galapagos Islands, a movie at the Imax Theatre. The students loved this event and recounted their trip in a follow-up letter to our donor. This year I'd like to take at least one class to the The Harlem Renaissance, the first program in the series of Meet the Artist School Series at Lincoln Center. The program is on October 23, 2006 and will begin at 10:00 with a tour of Lincoln Center and performance. The program description is below: "Music of the Harlem Renaissance During the early 1920s a movement known as the Harlem Renaissance caught a country by surprise. The migration of African Americans to the North brought them to Harlem, where an outburst of creativity occurred in the fields of poetry, music and visual art. Jazz, a type of music that was developed during this movement, was born out of the mixing of disparate cultures without regard to labels or politics. As Louis Armstrong once said, "The public is the same all over the world!" We are very fortunate to welcome back to our Meet the Artist School Series jazz musician and historian Loren Schoenberg, who will give us an inside look into this early-20th-century movement. Schoenberg became a fixture in the jazz world with his encyclopedic knowledge about the genre and passion for preserving its past while making it eminently contemporary. Schoenberg and his young jazz ensemble will take you on a musical and historical ride through the early foundations of jazz in Harlem. " We are anxious to enjoy hands on presentations by world-class artists performing Opera, Jazz, Dance, Hip-Hop, Shakespeare, and Physical Comedy and learn about the grand and majestic theaters of Lincoln Center. Thank you again for participating in You are making a difference in the lives of New York City school children by funding events like these that can only enrich and make them realize that there are individuals like you that care about them. The first time I saw an opera at Lincoln Center I was in tears. Not only was it my favorite opera, the interior of Lincoln Center was spectacular. I want to make this experience possible, with your help, for my students during the 2006-2007 school year.
