Today was our field trip to the Colburn Music School downtown.
The program started out with a string quartet. But during their playing - which was extraordinary, by the way - there were all these crashing sounds.
Liev showed up claiming that it was his turn to rehearse in the auditorium. He was the world music guy.
Obviously, of course, all this was staged and as the classical performers and the world music guy argued about whose music was better. And naturally they decided that both were good and really kind of the same thing.
The only bad part of the day was the fact that the buses were all messed up and we had to wait quite a while before getting back to school.
Homework: (1) Finish chapters 3 of both Measuring Up books. (2) Finish the rough draft of the persuasive essay.
