Concert Etiquette:
We kindly request that all families attend only the concert in which their children are performing as we have limited space in the gymnasium and parking lot.

Out of respect for the performers, we need to remind families to adhere to the school's rules for concert attendance: 

*If you come late, please find your seats only between songs.

*While younger children are encouraged to attend, parents must make sure children are seated and quiet during the performance. 

*Please refrain from talking during the concert, even between selections. THIS YEAR WE WILL HAVE SPECIAL SOLOISTS BETWEEN SELECTIONS

*For safety reasons, we must keep the aisles clear.

*Please make sure you take all your belongings with you and leave the gymnasium neater than we found it.

THANK YOU for your support for arts education at Nova.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at the concert!

Musically,
Ms. Urbrock, Ms. Williams, and Ms. Anderson

  1. “The Power of Music (Quid possit musica)
    1. So it is that without music, no other discipline can be perfected, for nothing is without music. Indeed, it is said that the universe itself is composed from a certain harmony of sounds, and that the very heavens turn to the modulations of harmony. Music rouses emotions, and it calls the senses to a different state.
    2. In battle, too, the sounding of the trumpet inflames the fighters, and the more ardent its blast, the braver grows the spirit for the contest. Since song urges even rowers on, music also soothes the spirit so that it can endure toil, and the modulation of the voice eases exhaustion from individual labors.
    3. Music also calms excited spirits, just as one reads about David, who rescued Saul from the unclean spirit by the art of modulation.Music calls forth the very beasts to listen to its modulation, even serpents, birds, and dolphins. But further, however we speak, or however we are moved by the internal pulsing of our veins – these things are demonstrably linked, through their musical rhythms, to the power of harmony.”
