NORTH CAROLINA SYMPHONY


MIZESKO’S LIFE • Mizesko was the North Carolina Symphony’s bass trombone player for 46 years! • The North Carolina Symphony has performed Mizesko’s compositions and orchestrations in classical, pops, and education concerts throughout the state.

Featured Work: “The Longleaf Pine”

“The Longleaf Pine” was originally a toast written by Raleigh resident Leonora Martin. Thirty years later, Mary Burke Kerr, a resident of Clinton, added three additional verses and set it to music. In 1957, this song became the Official Toast of the State of North Carolina. In 2003, Phillip Fisher composed new music for this toast and called the song “The Longleaf Pine.” The same year, The North Carolina Symphony selected this song as one of the featured pieces for their Education Concert series. Students, accompanied by the symphony, performed “The Longleaf Pine” across the state of North Carolina.

CLASSROOM ACTIVITY #1: Write Your Own Lyrics! North Carolina Essential Standards in Music:

4.ML.1.2 - Execute the performance of vocal ostinatos, partner songs, counter-melodies, and rounds in two or more parts. 4.ML.3.2 - Create compositions and arrangements using a variety of traditional and non-traditional sound sources. 4.CR.1.2 - Understand the relationships between music and concepts from other areas.

Objective: Students will sing “The Longleaf Pine” with expression and create original lyrics based on North Carolina symbols and features. Materials: North Carolina Symphony Education video, North Carolina Symphony Student Book, access to the internet or books about North Carolina Process:

1. Watch the North Carolina Symphony Education video (melody) and practice singing along with “The Longleaf Pine” until students can sing it confidently. 2. Make a list of vocabulary words that they do not know and present the definitions. Particularly, make sure they know what southern moss, jessamine, Galax, rhododendrons, and Mount Mitchell are (plants and landmarks found in North Carolina.) 3. Review the history of the lyrics of “The Longleaf Pine,” the official toast of North Carolina, found here: http://www.ncpedia.org/symbols/toast 4. Help students to discover other North Carolina symbols and features either using books or http://www.ncpedia.org 5. Using their favorite words, students create their own lyrics to the melody and rhythm of “The Longleaf Pine.”

Example:

6. Have students perform the song with the new lyrics. For fun, you may want to record the performance!
