Student Groups

If you work with a group of students in the study of performance arts, you know the value of public recitals for the development of their skills, talents, and team behavior. Instead of having these recitals in the same familiar locations, why not consider an unusual venue they could travel to---such as the capitol building of your state? The trip could be combined with a civics and government learning activity where they were able to tour the legislative chambers of your state's governing body, plus learn to appreciate the history of your particular state. Likewise, their performance could be a pleasant diversion for the government workers, other tourists, and yes, even their parents, who benefit from learning about their group! The group pictured above is the Childbloom Christmas Guitar Choir performing in the rotunda of the Texas State Capitol building.
