TRHS Sister City Delegation
Tuesday, January 28 6:30 PM
The hand drumming group recounts their trip of a lifetime and performs! Join the eight TRHS students who visited the Czech Republic in November. The group was there as part of a music exchange, and performed in concerts in our Sister City of Domazlice. The teens stayed with host families there, and attended classes with their Czech counterparts—student musicians who will in turn visit here in May.
Get a quick recap of the fascinating history that intertwines Two Rivers and Domazlice, then take a photographic journey as the young travelers walk us through the sites and scenes they saw and experienced in this picturesque part of the world steeped in history (they visited Prague and Furth im Wald, Germany, as well). Hear their stories about living in the homes of their warm and welcoming hosts, going to school there, and performing. A fun evening of tales and music in front of the fireplace!
