Les enfants font la cuisine!










During the past two weeks Emilia organized different cooking activities for the children.

On Wednesday December 8 the Pre-K and K-1 classes made cookies. They learned the names of the ingredients and helped Emilia to knead the dough. Then, they rolled it out and used cookie cutters to make cookies of various shapes: hands, feet, stars, lobsters, moose, etc. When they were cooked, the children did a wonderful job decorating them with colored frosting. It was hard not to eat them right away...

On Wednesday December 15 the children of grades 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 made lunch for everyone at school! Emilia taught them how to make pizza dough. They added their favorite toppings and Emilia cooked them for lunch. Some of them were even shaped into hearts! For dessert, we had the chocolate cupcakes they had decorated. Everything turned out to be delicious, and everyone had a lot of fun!

World Music Holiday Concert with the Kolosko Dimow Duo and Naia



Sunday, Dec. 12th, 7pm - $12/$10
Trinity Episcopal Church - 580 Forest Ave, Ptld.

This is going to be a very special evening. Naia is the exquisite duo of Nicole Rabata on Celtic flute with Danielle Langord on harp. Their repertoire is varied and all extremely beautiful. The Kolosko Dimow duo will be drawing on our own varied repertoire with original compositions, music from Brazil, a little Klezmer and more. We're also going to join forces and play a few beautiful and rare tunes as a quartet. This is a concert in holiday season, more than a concert of holiday music, but we will be playing a few well chosen holiday tunes from around the globe.

www.naiamusic.com

The kolosko • dimow duo consists of the critically acclaimed composer/performers Nathan Kolosko (classical guitar), and Carl Dimow (flute and bass flute). Kolosko is an improviser and composer who frequently draws on world music traditions. Dimow tours internationally performing Klezmer music, and also performs jazz and middle eastern music. Their recordings, nostalgia (2007) & border crossings (2010), reflect this diversity, drawing on elements of classical music, world music and jazz. Their performances include original compositions and often feature the unique and beautiful combination of bass flute and guitar.

Naia Celtic Flute and Harp Duo features traditional Celtic music from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Scandinavia and Quebec along with their own traditionally inspired compositions. Rich harmonies blend with delicate melodies to create Naia's unique sound. They have appeared together and in various ensembles throughout the USA and on international stages, including performances in India, Sweden, Scotland, Ireland, France and England. They have also been heard on BBC Glasgow, French National Television and NPR Radio.
