MIOSM 2016 - 3 schools - One mission! Share the joy!

This is the third of my schools to perform in our community in March.  We had a two hour late start on this day because of a blizzard the night before!  Ah...this is March in Nebraska!  You just never know!  We arrived at 10:00 a.m., boarded the bus at 10:15 a.m., sang at 10:30 a.m. and were back in time for lunch.  It made for a quick day with very few breaks but that's what you do in elementary school: you roll with it!  And once again, these students rocked it!

Happy Spring - MIOSM 2016

Happy Spring!!!

Every March, I take my 1st and 2nd graders into the community to perform.  It's traditionally, Music In Our School's Month and I find that getting out there and sharing is the best way to promote music in our schools.  I invite families to join us as we sing for senior citizen luncheons and in assisted living communities.  The people are always so grateful!

I take 1st and 2nd graders because each of the other grades has another smaller performance of some kind during the year and honestly, these little people take up less room on the bus!  (Just kidding, but... not entirely!)

This video is the first of our performances this year.  We are in a dark restaurant and a little squished but again, we are small and can fit!  I typically put together 5 songs.  We sing for ab out 15 minutes, just enough time for my performers AND listeners!  This year we brought kazoos and sang "Take Me Out To The Ballgame!"
