A big rainstorm hit the Lowell Center during a recent all-school assembly, but no water came down from the heavens and everyone stayed dry. Science teacher Sue Shirley conducted an orchestra of students in imitating the sound of rainfall. As the lights went out, the auditorium became very quiet. Students had to use their ears to listen for the sound cues given by Mrs. Shirley as she moved about the room in total darkness. Using only their hands, they were able to emulate the sound of rain, which started as a trickle and ended as a deluge. Listen closely to the video, as the sound builds in this magical reinvention of the sound of rain falling.
