Songs of The American Spirit
”This Land is Your Land” a live musical interactive student assembly that keeps the sense of wonder alive in young students. Children hear the stories and songs about American history and geography and see a variety of musical instruments as they are performed by professionals. Students and faculty sing along become involved and ask questions as we take a historical and musical journey through America.
Team work - Pride and Working hard to make your Dreams come True are a few of the Themes in the “Cowboy Code” that we talk about.
There is also loads of interactive fun, history trivia, The Alamo, Pony Express to E-mail, Steam Trains, Our Flag, The Declaration of Independence, Sailing with Chris Columbus and lots of celebration of the American Spirit with the sounds of many songs and instruments that keep children talking about this program long after recess is over!
Ronnie Brandt’s performance brings out the warmth and wit of his singing and storytelling that provides a show that has captivated audiences of all ages nationwide. Mr. Brandt’s music brings dramatically to life the history, culture, landscape and the folklore of our great American country. Students (and teachers) love to participate and sing along.
During the performance there is also an engaging questions and answer session where students may ask about the songs, stories, their music and travels, as well as anything else pertaining to the presentation. Each performance is unique and reflects topics relating to current national holidays and historical events of remembrance.
Nothing ignites a student’s interest in history and Americas rich landscape more effectively then songs and stories that bring past events stirringly back to life
