The 5th Graders Go To Lincoln Center!

By Henry Brandler, Staff Reporter

On Nov 17th, the 5th graders went to Lincoln Center. They learned about Benny Goodman. His nickname is the King of Swing. Benny Goodman was a clarinet player. He didn’t like segregation so he had a black and white band. I interviewed Paul about the trip. I asked Paul, ” Did you like the trip to Lincoln Center?”. He replied to me,  “Yes, and I would like to go there again.”  He also said his favorite part of the trip was seeing the Xylophone.  We listened too jazz music and enjoyed learning the about Benny Goodman and the different instruments.  I really enjoyed listening to the music, especially the trumpet and the saxophone.  We would love to go again.
