The gymnasium at Ben-Gil Elementary was filled to capacity as parents, friends and loved ones watched the second and third grade Christmas concert on Wednesday, December 18 under the direction of elementary music teacher Leanna Sawyer.
Both grades opened the show together singing “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” The second graders then sang, “Deck the Halls,” “Jolly Old St. Nicholas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
When third graders took the stage, they delivered three melodies as well: “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,’ with solo performances by Jaiden Johnson and Aly Schuette; “Believe;” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” with solo performances by Reese Bussmann and Emily Schoen.
The show closed the same way it opened, the second and third grade combined to sing “Feliz Navidad.” Fourth and fifth grade students will perform in this year’s spring concert.
