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.
