Students performed on recorder and in chorus and band
The Haldane Elementary School Spring Concert on Thursday, May 7, was a wonderful success! The children loved performing for their peers during the day and for their families in the evening. The program opened with the third-grade students showcasing their recorder skills. They first played “Hot Cross Buns” and “Merrily We Roll Along.” Next, Mrs. Satterlee’s class performed “Gently Sleep,” Mrs. Pray’s class played “Go Tell Aunt Rhody” and Mrs. Moeller’s class performed “The Big Bass Drum/The Triangle Song.” Select students from Mrs. Pray’s and Mrs. Satterlee’s classes showcased their talents with “Ode to Joy” and they all closed with “Clair de la Lune.”
The elementary fourth- and fifth-grade chorus sang “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” “Theme From Spiderman” and “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”
The beginning band played the traditional round “Frere Jacques,” “Love That Band” and “Let’s Go Band.” The beginning band fifth-grade assistants were Helen Chiera, Madison Chiera, Shea DeCaro, Rowan Locasio-McLaughlin and Meghan Tomann.
The advanced band opened with the “Star Spangled Banner” and the traditional “Parade Sequence” including “Grand Old Flag,” “My Country” and “America,” featuring the percussion section. They followed with “March of the Patriots,” “Mission Impossible” and “Appalachian Hoedown,” featuring the advanced band special ensemble. They closed with “Eye of the Tiger.”
Congratulations to all of the talented musicians and their teachers, Choral Director Danielle Cornacchio and Band Director Debbie Contini.
