Mark Your Calendars and Register Today to attend Kaleidoscope

This spring’s Kaleidoscope conference is all about the Blues!  This music genre originated in African-American communities in the “Deep South” at the turn of the 20th century. Retired Northeastern Oklahoma State University music professor, Dr. Harold Aldridge will be the keynote speaker. Using his mellow baritone voice and acoustic guitar, Dr. Aldridge will explain the roots of the Blues and how the music emerged regionally in the United States. 

Following Dr. Aldridge’s opening session, ECU education majors, under the direction of Dr. Martha Pennington, will present hands-on lessons which will focus on the Blues and the Deep South. 

Just as a kaleidoscope’s brilliant patterns of color change and sparkle with each turn of the wheel, the Kaleidoscope conference for 3rd through 8th graders will prove to be a creative and fun day of learning at East Central University! 

Space is limited so early registration is encouraged.
