Carver Center- Gifted and Talented Services
Grades 2 - 6
Mary Poppins makes a surprise visit for 2nd and 3rd grade students during an Interest Investigation class titled "SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS."
Students of Carver attended Masterworks I, the first concert of the 51st Season of the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale "Soaring Into The Next 50 years" on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. Conductor Gary Lewis took the time to thank the students for attending and also joined in a photo opportunity following the concert.
This activity (attending the Masterworks concert) is now in its third year and is successfully being coordinated by Brandy Ford, RN. Since September 2011, a group of about 40 students with permission from their parents, sign-up to attend the Masterworks concerts with transportation provided by MISD. Prior to each concert Conductor Gary Lewis presents a pre-lecture concert which provides information on the music that will be played as well as events that may have inspired the composer at the time. To date, students have enjoyed the works of Mozart, Rodrigo, Rahmaninoff, Gabrieli, Albinoni, Mahler, Welcher, Respighi, Mussorgsky, Ravel, Beethoven, Rossini, Sibelius, Brahms, Shostkovich, Liszt, Pann, Theofanidis as well as the performances by national and international performers on a wide range of musical instruments. Let’s extend a special thank you to the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale for providing free tickets to students to its Masterworks series. One way to say thank you is to visit www.mosc.org and “like” them on their facebook page so that you can be kept updated on upcoming concerts.
