HARMONY BRIDGE 2017
Posted by John Pastor on Feb 25, 2017
Harmony Bridge is a project created by Michael Levine and is proudly supported by the Edina Morningside Rotary Club. Mr. Levine is the founder and director of the Dallas Brass, one of America's foremost music ensembles. Harmony Bridge is one of Michael's latest projects, which brings student musicians of all ages to senior communities to perform for and interact residents living in senior communities.
Harmony Bridge bridges generations, brings joy and love to the elderly and others in need. It provides an opportunity for middle school and high school students experience being of service using skills they are leaning in school. It also significantly contributes to improving students’ musicianship, the enjoyment of making music, and a lifelong appreciation for music and the arts. Each Harmony Bridge outreach event is based on 3-facet approach called "The Golden Triangle" - Musical Performance, Showmanship and Interaction. For more information, please visit the Harmony Bridge Website.
In Edina, the band program has brought Harmony Bridge into our community entertaining hundreds of seniors. Edina band directors Paul Kile, Chris Gumz and Melody Snyder, along with students from Edina High School and Valley View Middle School, recently performed for residents and staff at The Waters of Edina.
