What’s the sound of 122 recorders playing in unison?
Parents and friends of third graders at Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School in Croton got a chance to find out recently. The students performed “Hello to All the Children of the World,” the name of the concert. The kids did a song of greetings in many languages.
Music teacher Marlena Roberts said this was the first time her 14 years of staging recorder concerts that every single one of her students remembered to bring their instrument.
The students closed the concert with two crowd favorites: “Thankful for the USA” and “It’s a Small World.”
