Greenwich Catholic School students were recently tuned in to the origins of music with a presentation by Dennis Waring from Young Audiences Arts for Learning.

Mr. Waring uses a wide array of instruments, indigenous and homemade, and weaves fun, fascinating tales of the origin of music and how, through time, all cultures utilized their natural environments for making wonderful sound-making devices.

The assembly was a demonstration and performance of almost 50 handmade and homemade musical instruments based on ideas and inspirations from around the world. Interesting signs, sounds and stories provided the audience with a new awareness of folklore, music, craft and science.
