Sound of music takes on new meaning at Carver High School

Posted: Updated:

The sound of music is taking on a new meaning at Carver High School.

Thursday morning, autistic students part of a newly-formed orchestra performed for school staff, students, family and friends.

The orchestra was formed this year after the school's special education teacher searched for a new elective.

"The music makes them come out of their shell," said special education teacher Wanda Shorter. "I've seen them just blossom."

The students performed two selections, "The Switch" and The Adams Family," and also performed in a drum circle.

The orchestra is led by orchestra teacher Heather Rittscher, who is planning for another performance next year.
