Happy Birthday, Haydn!

Happy Birthday to Franz Joseph Haydn!
He's called the "Father of the Symphony"
since he wrote over 100 of them, as well
as nearly 90 string quartets, over 60 piano
sonatas, over 20 operas, and many masses,
concertos, oratorios, choral works, and songs!

Here is a piece we enjoy listening to in Music Class:

Here is another video to enjoy that is all about Haydn!


I will be performing at this event this evening!

TuNesday Tuesday!

Peter & I

I got to hang out with one of my heroes, Peter Yarrow, last night!
Peter was once a member of the singing trio, Peter, Paul & Mary
and has written classic songs, such as "Puff, The Magic Dragon,"
"Day Is Done," "Weave Me The Sunshine," and "Light One Candle!"

He is also a wonderful writer, having written many songs,
including "Day Is Done" and "Puff, The Magic Dragon!"
