A symposium is: A collection of essays or papers on a particular subject by a number of contributors.
So...we have 4 piano students right now in our family. They each had 2 pieces of music they played for the symposium. They stood up before each song and told about the composer and interesting information they had researched about the type of song it was, too. It's wonderful for the audience and the students because everyone learns. Then, at the end of each piano piece, the audience has a chance to ask questions about the piece and say what they liked or what could be improved!
Edward choose these two songs for his pieces: "Sonatina", and "The Caravan"
The kids all did a wonderful job and then after the symposium, we enjoyed light refreshments in Mrs. Coupal's beautiful home and on her patio.
