The leader of the band
This week the Day Nursery Ruth A. Lilly center is alive with the sound of music. Members of the Carmel High School Marching Band, under the direction of Drum Major Kristen Pileri are visiting the center to share their love of music with the children. Kristen (in green tshirt shown demonstrating the mellophone) is a Senior at Carmel High School and a Girl Scout. She coordinated the week long visit to Day Nursery to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts. The band members demonstrated their instruments, let the children explore them and played musical games this morning. They will be back again every day this week and both the students and children say they can’t wait.
