Water, Water, Everywhere is based on music by the Grammy Award winning composer Tan Dun, which beautifully evokes memories of his childhood in the waterlogged rice fields of China. Bringing this world to life is Thea Rossen, who plays vibraphone and an array of other percussion instruments in water, including gongs, bells, wooden bowls and tin cans. She leads an ensemble with Luke Carbon on clarinet and Leigh Harrold on keyboard. Students get to create their own music out of water, and come to appreciate that water is a precious resource.

Down a dusty road from the 1930s comes Doctor Stovepipe, a rollicking, old-time ensemble of guitar, bass, fiddle and sweet vocal harmonies. Each appointment is a swinging dose of fun, and a demonstration of how songs evolve and change as they are passed on from one musician to the next. Students learn how the simplest sounds and stories can be turned into toe-tapping tunes; and that when it comes to making music, no road map is required.
