Families of Silver Oak sixth graders enjoyed an amazing display of musical talent Friday afternoon. The students have been working for several weeks to prepare for a graduation celebration show, learning individual class songs and songs performed by the entire grade.
The show started with a recorder performance of "The Hanging Tree" followed by "The Cups Song", "Stressed Out", "Good Feeling" and "7 Years". The finale arrangement of "Its Time" was a remarkable feat, with singers accompanied by keyboards, glockenspiels, bucket drums and tambourines.
Between the songs, students performed short percussion skits to show examples of what they've been studying in music class during grades 5 and 6. The music program and Sixth Grade Music Celebration Show was led by Lisa Anderson, and funded by the PTO.
