Red Cedar International Fetsival of Cultures 2011

On Thursday Joe participated in the Red Cedar Elementary School International Festival of Cultures. Just like last year, we were amazed by what Joe could do. This year he (with the first graders) sang: "Che Che Koolya" (Ghana); "Hao Peng You" (China); Sare ke Sare (India); "I'd like to Teach the World to Sing" (USA); "Red Cedar Peace Pledge" (with signs); AND he danced a Croatian folk dance called "Drmes Iz Posavskih Brega." In the montage, he is usually on the left wearing a white shirt that says "Varsity 8" and red shorts. Leah is standing next to him.

The music teacher, Mrs Sigh, won a "pay it forward" grant from MSU and cut a CD of the kids singing the folk songs. The music in the montage is from the CD.
