Pittsburgh Spring Hill brings swing to the house where they usually sing….

The 5th graders of Pittsburgh Spring Hill K-5 came to “shake what their mama’s gave them” today at the Pittsburgh Opera’s Downtown facility.What a magnificent space to hold their culminating event for family and friends.  Principal Todd Van Horn welcomed the families and introduced Mr Terry Sweeney, their teaching artist, and the fun began.  See for yourself….
