Fourth Grade Cultural Arts

Sones de Mexico: The West School fourth grade Music and Spanish programs joined together to present Sones De Mexico for the PTO sponsored Fourth Grade Cultural Arts Program. On November 25, the 4th grade classes attended a cultural arts presentation performed by Chicago’s Sones de Mexico.  The group formed in 1994 to keep the tradition of Mexican music alive in its many regional forms. As performers and recording artists, the ensemble has developed and popularized many original arrangements of Mexican traditional tunes through touring the United States and internationally, including such prestigious venues as the Getty Museum in Los Angeles and Carnegie Hall in New York. They have released six albums, including the Grammy nominated Esta Tierra Es Tuya (This Land is Your Land). Another fine cultural arts program brought to your children by the supportive members of the Glencoe PTO…. which includes parents like you. Gracias!
