Details:

This CD is the culmination of a six-week residency at Pomfret Community School in honor of the town’s 300th birthday.  Master Teaching Artist and former PCS music teacher, Sally Rogers, shared stories and primary historical resources from Pomfret’s history and led the students to write one song in each 1st, 2nd and 6th grade classroom.  Some classes interviewed community elders for their stories.  The videos of these interviews will be donated to the Pomfret Historical Society.  The Pomfret 300 Committee made this recording possible.

All CD’s sold directly on SallyRogers.com are $18, including shipping and any applicable sales tax. All single downloads are $.99 each and full album downloads are $9.99 (Pricing and shipping for CD’s sold by third parties such as Amazon may vary.)
