Some of the members of Ms. Moorman’s ukulele class have volunteered to go to the Ten Grands Concert hosted by Play It Forward, the organization that donated ukuleles to the entire class. The concert will take place at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on April 20th at 1 PM. The class will be playing several songs as a group, specifically Can’t Help Falling in Love, Rolling in the Deep, and Country Road. As well as two solos and a duet of the song Hostage. The organization was founded by Michael Allen Harrison, whose motto is “Musical education for all. No strings attached.” The organization is also ran by his wife, Marietta, alongside him. Travis Johnson, the son of the founder of Play It Forward, aids the foundation and comes to schools to teach musical students. “This is a once in a lifetime experience. You don’t know what you’re going to get out of it.” Said Johnson.
