Brazil, Here We Come!

Several years ago my colleague Dr. Moorman-Stahlman traveled to Brazil during her sabbatical. She initially went to perform organ concerts and in the process met a group of music education students. She invited the students to visit our campus and learn a little more about music education in America, and this initiated the Brazilian cultural exchange program. Every January a group of 15-20 Brazilian students come to our Lebanon Valley College campus in Annville, PA and participate in music classes, ensembles at LVC as well as visit music classes in area public schools. The highlight of their visit is when they perform in a concert of Brazilian music. Dr. Moorman-Stahlman has taken several groups of LVC music students to Brazil to give workshops in the performance of handbells and tone chimes. This summer we will add boomwhackers and bucket drumming into the mix. We will be traveling to São Paula, Porto Velho, and Jundiai. I will keep you posted on our adventures.
