Smithsonian New Harmonies Exhibit opens in Truth or Consequences on March 13 Courtesy submisston The Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibition, "New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music," kicks off its nine month stay in New Mexico at the Geronimo Springs Museum on Saturday, March 13th. Sponsored by the New Mexico Humanities Council, New Harmonies is part of the Smithsonian's "Museum on Main Street,' program. As part of this celebration of our musical :heritage, the Geronimo Springs Museum will be featuring a 6 week "New Har- monies Music Series". Musicians representing various aspects of the musical traditions of Sierra County will be performing every Saturday while the exhibit makes its home in Truth or Conse- quences. On the exhibition's Opening Day, Saturday, March 13th from 6-8pm, the Sierra County blue- grass band "On Call" will engage audiences with an interpretive performance held during the monthly Art Hop outside at Las Palomas Plaza adjacent to the museum. Band members will dis- cuss the history of bluegrass mu- sic in America and its impact on their lives. The musical genres of Mariachi, Chiricahua Apache, Blues, and "Old Time Fiddling" and their historical relationships to our County will be the subject of subsequent interpretive perfor- mances. On Thursday, March 18th as part of the Museum's monthly Speaker Series, scholars Ken Keppeler and Jeanie McLerie will perform and discuss the long his- tory of traditional music in New Mexico with a focus on Cowboy songs from Sierra County's ranch- ing days. The Museum will display historic photographs and vintage musical instruments used by Si- erra County musicians that will complement the New Harmonies' exhibit. Museum visitors will learn about American musical tra- ditions and Sierra County's con- tribution to those.traditions. Ad- ditionally, an "interactive ex- hibit" will be set up in the mu- seum so that visitors may share their personal "musical memo- ries". The Geronimo Springs Mu- seum is located at 211 Main Street in Truth or Consequences.

Students had a choice of doing a display board. paper, or play. The three groups that got 1 st, 2 nd and 3 d for 7 m and 8  grades get to go to Las Cruces on March 3 rd for the District com- petition. Only two groups out of the whole school chose to create a performance. Both groups per- formed for the entire school this Tuesday. was first. They did their project on the telephone. In my opinion. they did really well. The students "involved with the performance are Miranda Gomez. Jessica Gonzalez. Aryn Gandara. and Gabby Gutierrez. In their play, the girls portrayed three students going to a friend's house and talk- ing about a project for school. Aryn played the mother. Their background was of a house scene with a fireplace, window and fur- niture. done by the 7  grade group. They also chose to write a play about the telephone. 1 think they did well, too. The students involved with this performance are Ciarra Garcia, Paul O'Dell. Jonathan Craig and myself. Although the play was about telephones too. ours focused on how girls were hired as switchboard operators and what was expected of them. Good luck at District. DTMS ! THANK YOU.
