Seventh grade students at Amity Middle School in Orange participated in the program, “A Musical Tour through Latin America” with Orquesta Afinke. Students learned about different rhythms, instrumentation, and musical genres. Band leader and principal of Bridgeport’s Black Rock School Herminio Planas, along with his fellow musicians, emphasized the importance of teamwork and education. Students had a great time singing and dancing! This activity was made possible by the Jamie Hulley Foundation.
