Students at West Elementary had the opportunity to enjoy the music and culture of China yesterday as Beauty and Melody makes their way to each school in the Knoxville School District. Each member of the ensemble introduced themselves to the students and spoke briefly about the instruments they play. The elementary students were taught how to speak a few words of Chinese and got to hear what the different instruments sound like both individually and as an ensemble. Beauty and Melody continues their tour of the area this week as they will visit the middle school, high school, Melcher-Dalllas school and 3M before presenting a public concert Saturday night in the Knoxville Middle School Auditorium. Tickets for the concert are now available for just $7 at The Next Chapter, Peace Tree Brewing Company and Knoxville School Administration office.
