Students from Franklin Music Magnet, in St. Paul, Minnesota, had the distinct privilege of attending the Lyra Baroque Ensemble field trip to Landmark Center during the past school year. Students were engaged in hands-on activities, exploring harpsichords and gamelans. Following the workshop activities, we were treated to a concert from the Lyra Baroque Ensemble. Students were totally mesmerized by the sound. The acoustics in the hall were stunning, and the students benefited greatly from the live performance experience, hearing the sound of the authentic Baroque instruments. The question and answer session following the performance provided a wonderful opportunity to deepen the students' knowledge of the period music. Being a musician myself, I appreciate the caliber of the Lyra musicians, and would recommend Lyra for any school or community partnership projects. I hope that I can collaborate with Lyra again through my work as a music teacher in the St. Paul Public Schools. Sincerely, Theresa J.
