Last Thursday, April 19 and under the slogan "A look at Jazz from different points of view" the facilities of the center of El Soto were filled with music and different activities.
Throughout the previous week, in the different subjects, we worked on Jazz, making it possible for specific knowledge to be shared in the different areas of the domain.
The teachers of the School connected the jazz music with their subject through an explanation, hearing and a video, to which a common experience based on improvisation continued.
The finale came from the hand of the SP Big Band with a fabulous Didactic Hearing in which different teachers and students participated who played and improvised with the band, while on a screen the music was represented in action through the image of sound waves in motion. In this interactive concert MusiLabUs also participated, offering us a novel way to be able to know creatively another dimension of ourselves from a much more flexible vision, in order to transform, the "unique ideas" into "global ideas". From the San Patricio Institution we want to thank our professors, specialized departments and non-teaching people who creatively got involved and got our students to enjoy and learn at the rhythm of Jazz.
