What’s happening in Class!
Soloists are preparing for the Malcolm contest on March 18. The whole is class is working to learn how to put songs together that have multiple parts, in preparation for our Spring Elementary Band concert on Thursday, May 5.
We are working as hard and fast as possible to prepare our two numbers for the Malcolm contest on March 18. Solos are also in progress for that day.
