Last week, the a cappella group Backtrack performed an assembly at Townsend Elementary School, and then had a workshop with the chorus at the middle/high school.
The events were sponsored by Music on the Delaware.
During the elementary school event, the students showed amazement at Johnny Buffalo, the group’s beatboxer. He carried the beat and blended the sound of voices from the other members, bringing the songs to life. The group also demonstrated different voice ranges and how they practice songs.
The group also sang a melody of "Mary Poppins" songs to start the assembly.
Theresa Bolton, who teaches music at Townsend, had taught her classes the songs “Count on Me” and “How Far I’ll Go” in preparation of the assembly. The students were asked to join them in singing those songs.
