Marching bands (17/05/21 08:51:00)
In this country all primary schools of some size have their own marching band
with brass, woodwind and drums. Typically they are financed by flea markets and lotteries to pay for instruments and uniforms. The tradition has been a parade in the city centre -or locally in rural areas.
A few minutes ago one of the neighborhood boys - a boy with Down's syndrome - came passing with his mother -carrying his instrument,a tuba. So there is a place for everybody - but at a cost.
I think the inclusiveness of marching bands is important. Teaching tolerance and collaboration from an early age.
