LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- Increase Miller Elementary School students in Lewisboro recently studied science, music and the environment with the help of "Bash the Trash."
The performance ensemble, headed by husband and wife team John Bertles and Carina Piaggio, helped students transform their trash and recyclables into unique-sounding musical instruments.
The Oct. 22 event included assemblies for all grade levels where students were awed by the musical stylings of the group.
According to its literature, “'Bash the Trash' is all about science, sound and sustainability. We apply the science of sound to build better musical instruments from the cheapest possible materials – a form of STEM to STEAM.”
