Library Brings Musician Dennis Warner to Discovery School
Musician Dennis Warner entertained more than 500 students, teachers, and staff at Discovery Elementary in Waite Park with his "Beads on One String" concert on Monday, March 19.
The children were enthralled as Warner shared his own stories about how bullying affected him in school. These experiences led him as an adult to write his song and book, Beads on One String, about how we are more alike than we are different.
Teachers prepared the students ahead of Warner’s concert so they knew the song and could sing along with him. During the concert, Warner invited two children from each grade to join him on stage to sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” Throughout the program, he pulled the children in with his positive and upbeat music and message.
Warner’s performance at Discovery Elementary was sponsored by the Waite Park Public Library Al Ringsmuth Library, and funded in part by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. The performance was open to the public
