The Little Pernambuco Tree, by Robert Ray and illustrated by children
Seven years ago, local violin shop owner Robert Ray gifted SOGO with a story about a little pernambuco tree growing up in the forests of Brazil. This children’s story was put to music by Mark Thome, a local composer. The Little Pernambuco Tree was debuted March 4, 2007 with the Academy Orchestra performing, Greg Allison conducting and then, Secretary of State, Sam Reed narrating.
During the spring of 2010 local students were asked to illustrate the Little Pernambuco Tree story. Many wonderful illustrations were entered. The Student Board of SOGO judged the entries and chose finalists.
