East English Village Preparatory Academy students, faculty and parents had the wonderful privilege of hosting a free concert of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) “The Time-Traveling Orchestra” on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 in the auditorium of the school’s campus. Sponsored by DTE Energy Foundation and set up by Mr. Willie McAllister, DPS Fine Arts Department.
The students received background history on well known composers such as Richard Strauss, Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Igor Stravinsky, W.C. Handy and John Adams and were able to take in the melodious sounds of the symphony.
“At EEVPA, exposure to a wide variety of experience is important for our students,” said Principal Patricia Murray.
