Peace, Place

Photo by Mark Corliss

The last four months have been filled with lots of work on a fun project. With help from the Symonds School community and a grant from the Putnam Foundation, I produced a CD entitled “Peace, Place”. It’s a compilation of original, traditional, and covered songs about peace, cooperation and sense of place in out school community. We recorded 320+ kids singing various songs in lots of styles. After all the recording, it still kills me to listen to their voices. The project will benefit my music program. Go HERE to check out how to order a cd and give to this project!
