Visiting Musicians Jodie Blackshaw and David Worrall in ICSD Secondary Schools

On Thursday, October 15, 2015, the Boynton Middle School Music Department will welcome Australian Composer, Jodie Blackshaw and her husband, David Worrall (former director of the Australian National Air Force Band) to our school. Ms. Blackshaw and Mr. Worrall will work with students in the Concert Band and Symphonic Band during regularly scheduled rehearsals. In addition, all grade 6 - 8 band members will participate in an interactive masterclass with Ms. Blackshaw in the cafeteria at 2:00pm.

The visit to Ithaca by Ms. Blackshaw and Mr. Worrall is a collaborative effort by Ithaca College, DeWitt Middle School and the Ithaca City School District.

This project received support from a Fine Arts Booster Group (FABG) Mini-Grant. The Fine Arts Booster Group is an affiliate of the Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI).
