    Taught by Gina Samardge with Justin Keller
    Tuesdays, 5pm-6:30pm, October 2 - January 22 (no class 12/25, or 1/1)
    Dress Rehearsal January 25 & Performance January 26

    A vocal, instrumental, and creative ensemble for students in 2nd-4th and 5th-8th grade, Rompatom ensemble includes singing, movement, theatrical elements, and instrumental play + improvisation on xylophones, recorders, and drums. Students who play another instrument may have an opportunity to incorporate it into some pieces in the ensemble as well. Over the course of the  semester, students will prepare an eclectic mix of material, including a wide range of traditional world music-influenced pieces, classical, rock/pop, and musical theater. Movement and dance will also be explored and possibly incorporated into some of the musical numbers. The end performance will weave together these various explorations and pieces into a magical journey of music, humor, theater, mystery, dance, and joy. There is nothing out there quite like this!

    There is no audition required, however, all new students will need to attend an open rehearsal on Tuesday, September 25, from 4-4:45pm to learn about the material being covered and the expectations of each participant. The week of the performance, students will have extra rehearsal time to prepare for the performance.
