Artist-in-residence guides school choruses
The Carlisle Public School Music Department hosted Dr. Sandra Doneski (above, conducting a student chorus) as Choral Artist-in-Residence from February 7 to
9. Doneski is a professor of Music Education and Music Theory at Gordon College, and is the director of the Gordon College Children's Choir, as well as Music Mania, a
music education outreach program for grades K to 12.
During her residency at the Carlisle School, Doneski worked with all five Carlisle School choirs and the fourth- and fifth-grade general music classes. Through a
variety of movement and singing activities, Doneski taught choral techniques to students preparing for their first Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors'
Association festival in April. The highlight of her residency was an in-school concert on February 9 that featured all fourth- and fifth-grade students and the Middle School Choir.
The Carlisle Public School Music Department thanks the community for their support of the Middle School Choir citrus sale, which made this artist-in-residency program possible.
