RONALD McDONALD HOUSE

Seven MCO members went to Ronald McDonald House on December 21st (The evening of Winter Recess!) to perform. Thank you Rebecca, Juliana, Gloria, Rena, Donna, Lindsay and Elizabeth. We performed holiday tunes for the residents and staff. I cannot tell you how rewarding and wonderful it was to perform there. This is a place we will return to perform many times.
GREAT NECK SENIOR CENTER
December 20, 2012
Members of MCO went to the Great Neck Senior Center to provide Holiday Music along with the Great Neck South High Community Outreach who provided a Holiday Dinner. The event was very well received by all the seniors in attendance. This is the second year we attended this event.
Great Neck Community School
Tuesday, April 24, 2011
Members of MCO went to the Great Neck Community School during "MUSIC WEEK" to introduce students to various instruments. We divided each half hour lesson teaching the children about three different instrument families (strings, woodwind and brass) and each of the different instruments within the instrument grouping. I then had students perform as individuals, duet and trios demonstrating their instrument. We then had a "hands on" demonstration allowing the children to come up and touch the instruments and work the bow, keys and valves to show them how to produce different sounds. We concluded each class as a full ensemble playing a Disney piece followed by the taking of a group picture with the Great Neck Community School Children and Great Neck South High students.
