The great audience of Boone students participated by watching and carefully listening, by keeping time with their feet, and even sometimes by covering their ears with their hands as they listened to the instruments of Medieval and Renaissance times. This educational experience was supported by the Boone Educational Endowment Foundation.
The musicians of Musica Antiqua would like to thank Boone's students, teachers, and administrators for the warm reception we received while performing in your community. Apologies are offered to the fine students of Bryant School (and to principal Linda Boettcher, who celebrated her 29th birthday with the help of her students and the well-known medieval tune, Happy Birthday) because we did not take photos during our first performance of the day.
