Students at Sycamore Avenue Elementary School were recently visited by the talented and environmentally-conscious musicians of “Bash the Trash” in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of recycling.

Introduced by music teacher Rachel White, the program began with the performers parading down the aisles of the school’s auditorium as they simultaneously played drums, horns and string instruments created entirely out of recycling materials.

After displaying the unique qualities of their instruments for the student’s entertainment, the Bash the Trash musicians also explained how the sounds were produced so that the students could go home to create their very own instruments out of hollow tubes, rubber bands, buckets and empty plastic soda bottles.
