Lennon Bus ‘Cultural After School Adventures’ in NYC

Written by The Lennon Bus

 

The Lennon Bus wraps up its third year of providing students in the City of NY with a semester long Cultural After School Adventures (CASA) program with support from the Department of Cultural Affairs, NYC Council and Speaker of the NYC Council Corey Johnson. Over the course of the Spring semester students from NYC Lab School for Collaborative Studies and Hudson High School were fully engaged in the creative process of writing, recording, shooting video and forming an actual band. The entire student body came together at each location to celebrate the student works of The Tainted Blues and The Antisocials at the “Labchella” and “Hudsonpalooza” culminating events. Additional special thanks to Yamaha, Audio-Technica, Copperpeace, Focusrite, Genelec, K&M, Neutrik and OWC (Other World Computing) for the great support in providing the latest gear available for the schools to use and keep in perpetuity! Next up the Lennon Bus heads to the left coast to work with students from Fernando Pullum Community Arts Center in Los Angeles on a special “Peace & Love” track that they will perform live at Ringo Starr’s annual birthday extravaganza on July 7th at Capitol Studios.
