4th and 5th Grade Vocal and Instrumental Concert

Students have worked very hard over the past year to learn how to play instruments such as the violin, flute, and drums and others have worked very hard on their vocals.  The band played a few wonderful songs.  Chorus sang songs from all over the world including Ireland and Italy.  They also sang the hit song "Cups" while two fifth graders kept the beat the whole time.  Everyone was very impressive!
