Vivaldi Club Performs at AgeSong University
Residents were delighted by the pieces that featured several soloists, singing and even protest chanting.
On Thursday, May 4, many musicians from The San Francisco School put on a lively performance for our elder neighbors just a few blocks away. Led by music teacher James Harding, 4th and 5th Grade members of the Vivaldi Club performed on stage AgeSong University’s chapel.
Residents were delighted by the pieces that featured several soloists, singing and even protest chanting. The program featured a variety of music, including “Iko Iko,” a song that originated in New Orleans; “Salaam Nubia” by the Nile Project, collaborators for the sustainability of the Nile River; “Shoo Fly Pie,” in honor of Patty Corwin’s upcoming retirement; the classic “Love Potion #9”; and a “When the Saints (Go Marching In)/Swing Low” medley.
One audience member described the experience as moving, as a former composer/pianist, he was happy to see the newest generation of musicians before him.
When asked about the concert, Kevin McCarthy, 4th Grade saxophonist, remarked, “It was really fun. And I think the people at AgeSong really enjoyed it.”
