Fifth Grade Bands Concert
Our fifth grade bands from both elementary schools united for a concert on Wednesday, January 17, in the Lake Spokane Elementary gym. The student musicians blended beautifully as they played seven pieces: Jingle Bells, Good King Wenceslas, Donkey Round, Dreydl, Dreydl, Mary Ann, Surprise Symphony, and Holiday Sampler. In between these all band selections thirteen small groups or solos were featured. The bands are directed by Karl Mote with assistance from Denise Dalbey.
Added to this year's concert was a performance by the Nine Mile Falls Choir. The five member group sang three pieces: Yonder Come Day, Menorah Glow, and The "Winter's a Drag" Rag. Mrs. Theresa Nelson directs this choir.
"It's a job well done," shared Nine Mile Falls Elementary parent Fred Lund. "It's impressive for such a short amount of time and practice. They're trying so hard." Great job student musicians!
