Families enjoy Community Drum Circle

On March 21, District 45 elementary students and their families attended a Community Drum Circle for families hosted at Ardmore Elementary School. Dr. Sharma & the Rhythm Ambassadors of Funkadesi led the interactive musical presentation. Families enjoyed an experience of music, community, and discovering that everyone has a rhythm to share.

With Funkadesi’s help, the community played music together on drums and other percussion instruments in a hands-on performing arts experience. As a special treat, District 45 Board of Education member Navreet Heneghan treated everyone to a beautiful vocal performance of a Punjabi Folk Song!

Thank you to Dr. Sharma and the Rhythm Ambassadors of Funkadesi, our District 45 Elementary Music Team, and the Young People’s Music Initiative Grant program through the JCS Fund of DuPage Foundation. What a delightful evening of music and community!
