On May 18th, alternative rock band The Blue Pages performed at P.S. 43 in the Bronx for the entire fifth grade. The Brooklyn-based group played both original work and covers of popular songs for the students. The performers also spoke about tackling some challenges of performing, since the students were in the process of preparing for the school's Spring Concert.
The band members reinforced the importance of concert preparation, and addressed issues including: dealing with nerves, reviewing one's music, remembering to smile and having fun with the experience. The students enjoyed hearing such veteran musicians discuss their concert experiences, and they left the assembly excited to perform their concert. ETM thanks The Blue Pages for their time and the administration at P.S. 43 for organizing this wonderful event.
Because The Blue Pages strongly believe in ETM's mission of enhancing students' academic performance and general development through music, the band will be donating 50% of all proceeds from their latest album, Anthropology, to ETM.
