Second meeting with Heriberto Cruz, Canciones al óleo

Other schools were invited and our partner friends from CEIP San José Artesano were there too.

All Colorful Songs partners were invited too, if you look at the stage, you´ll see the singer´s laptop connected to Flashmeeting waiting for them to attend, but unfortunately due to different time schedules, school calendars and poor connection at some school, the only thing that could be done was to project  video of the the song "Niña de las mariposas" by Lithuanian pupils and teachers, that was a big surprise!

 

Heriberto and his band dis their best, they were all excellent, and we had the great opportunity to see them performing in a proffessional stage with high quality sound. Between songs, schools work was projected in a big screen.

 

 

Four children from our class group represented us all reading a poem created inspired in this pictures by Antonio Padrón:
