Rompatom Ensemble II for 4th-8th grade
Taught by Gina Samardge with Justin Keller
Tuesdays, 5pm-6:30pm, February 12 - June 4 (no class 4/16)
Tech and Dress Rehearsal May 15, 16 & 17, Performances May 18 and 19
A vocal, instrumental, and creative ensemble for students in 4th-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, however, all interested students for Rompatom II are required to attend an intro rehearsal and info session on Tuesday, February 5th, from 5-5:45pm to learn about the material being covered and the expectations of each participant. Payment plans are also available. Please email Gina@CompassArts.org to RSVP for this or to inquire about payment plans.
