Fifth Graders Set to Perform at LEAF with Chilean Musical Artist Nano Stern

We are excited to announce that this year's LEAF Schools & Streets residency at Claxton will unite arts integration with our new Spanish integration program.

Fifth graders will perform at this spring's LEAF with Chilean musical artist Nano Stern. Described in the LEAF catalogue as "a voice for his generation," Stern is influenced by Chilean music, indigenous African and European techniques, and classical and jazz elements. "Nano will bring to students a style that oscillates between personal and political, that utilizes music as both a meditative tool and a language of its own."

In the week leading up to spring LEAF, Stern will come to Claxton for a three-day residency with the fifth grade classes. All fifth graders are invited to perform with him at LEAF on Saturday, May 14th at 10:00 a.m. at Eden Hall. Mark your calendars now!

Many thanks to LEAF Schools & Streets and to our own Claxton PTO for funding this residency!
