Nearly 100 third, fourth and fifth grade students at Pittsburgh Manchester K-8 participated in this innovative project celebrating neighborhood history through music and art.

This project was funded in part with generous support from The Grable Foundation as a part of the Charm Bracelet Project Fund.

All performances and recordings presented on this CD are for educational purposes only and were created for limited distribution on a non-profit basis.
