Kelly Street was lined with cars and the gymnasium at Ben-Gil Elementary was packed with parents, friends and loves ones as they watched the fourth and fifth grade present their spring concert in 70’s fasion on Tuesday, March 25 under the direction of music teacher Leanna Sawyer.
Both grades opened up the evening with “I’ve Got the Music in Me”, but then the fourth grade took center stage to sing three songs, “Magic”, “You’ve Got a Friend” and “Crocodile Rock”.
Then the fifth grade took over and sang three numbers as well: “I Just Want to Celebrate”, “Lean on Me” and “Old Time Rock & Roll”.
The show closed the same way it opened with the fourth and fifth grades combined to sing the “Y.M.C.A.” as they danced both on the stage and on the floor in front of the audience. Nearly every camera, cellphone and camcorder in the gym was snapping pictures or recording the final performance.
