Last week WHEELS second graders made our school community very proud when they presented their work in the culminating event for their learning expedition on the Great Migration. They acted, narrated, displayed their artwork, and played music. They sang "St. Louis Blues" and "C-Jam Blues" while playing ukuleles and keyboards.

Six WHEELS high school music students co-wrote and performed a song about racism at Carnegie Hall's Studio 57 Live concert yesterday. They stayed and jammed with other young musicians after the concert. It was really inspiring to see all of the excellent original music performed at the concert, which was in line with the theme of next weekend's concert at Carnegie Hall, A Time Like This.

Thank you to the Jazz Foundation of America's Jazz in the Schools Program for bringing the great vocalist Annette St. John and her trio to perform a concert at WHEELS! 6th-12th grade band students even got to sit in and play some blues.
