3….2…..1…..Saturday Light Brigade!
Ms. Simmi and her students took to the airwaves for an awesome SLB show this weekend! Just what is the Saturday Light Brigade, you ask?
SLB is a public radio program featuring acoustic music and family programming including participatory puzzles and games as well as on-air telephone calls from children and adults. Broadcast since 1978, it is one of the longest-running public radio programs in the United States.
Piano students from the Center for Young Musicians demonstrated their public speaking and performance confidence in a segment devoted entirely to them! As always, the host (Mr. Larry Berger) made the students feel very comfortable and at ease playing on air and chatting about themselves.
Listeners enjoyed beautiful classical pieces as well as some Disney favorites! Participating in SLB gives our musicians an inside look at the broadcasting environment, including everything it takes to produce a show. A huge thank you to Ms Simmi for organizing this event and for giving our musicians yet another performing arts arena that they can feel confident in. This is one of the many ways the Center for Young Musicians aims to develop well-rounded artists!
