Barton Hills Choir

June 12, 2017

Passion for Music

From Facebook recently… The Barton Hills Choir is a group of 2nd through 6th graders from the Barton Hills Elementary School in Austin, Texas who have a passion for music. The youngsters released a video featuring their take on “Fire On The Mountain,” a Grateful Dead live staple written by Mickey Hart with lyrics by Robert Hunter.

CLICK HERE for the video.

Mickey Hart has long been passionate about music education and quickly shared the inspiring performance of “Fire” on his social feeds. The kids also came up with inventive ways to add percussion to their version, another passion of Hart’s. “It’s videos like this that highlight the importance of music education. Support the arts, encourage creativity, and get your kids involved in music. #DeadToTheCore #StartThemEarly” reads a note from Mickey on Facebook.
