Recent Feedback From Schools
"RMT Songs of America fit in well with our study of Veteran's Day and our Veteran's Day Celebration with our family members and community members. We had many veterans at the program and they truly enjoyed the performance as I received many positive comments. The most valuable piece was the connection to the prior instruction for our students. Both staff and students continued to talk about the program as well as receiving many positive comments from our community visitors."
"The Songs of America performance emphasized to students how the history of our nation is documented in lyric. Through songs and artistic renderings, students experienced a synopsis of important events over the years as well as made connections to songs which many had heard but never connected to actual events. One is reminded of the strength and endurance of our nation when witnessing this performance. The references to Social Studies curriculum, the music standards as well as art history was striking. Most impressive were the connections made by students. Teachers, students, and parents LOVED this presentation!!!"
"The performers were able to capture the attention of the students and keep them engaged. The program went well with our study of Veteran's Day and aided in our celebration with families. Songs of America fit it perfectly and made our celebration awesome! Great show we hope to book them again next year!"
