Sharing the joy of Christmas through music and song!

Silent Night
Middle/high school band and chorus students shared their musical talents on Wednesday evening.  This was the debut of our Chorus elective class.  They sang three Spirituals with the help of student accompanists Daniel Gibson, Bryan Hasselman, and Michelle Shuai.  Band students performed in sectional groups, allowing each musician to shine.  Sixth graders shared both instrumental and vocal songs, joining the middle/high school chorus for the finale song, “Silent Night.”

Jingle Bells
Last night, 3rd to 5th graders entertained their audience with a selection of traditional Christmas carols and hymns.  3rd and 4th graders played their recorders, while 5th graders strummed together on their ukulele.  Maverick Maeda and Usaburo Mendenhall wowed the audience with their ukulele duet of  “Hawaii Five-O.” 

Counting Down to Christmas
This morning, preschool students shared the wonder of the Christmas story through counting, as corresponding songs describe 4 shepherds, 3 angels, and 2 parents.  Ultimately, the story narrows down to one child and the most important part of the Christmas story, Jesus!  

Christmas Caroling
The stage was transformed into a street lined with houses at Christmas time.  Each house, decorated by classes in kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade, “opened” up to share a Christmas carol with the audience.  The students exuded the true joy of caroling in their performance.  Bravo!
