Holiday Sing Along

December (2018) The annual Holly Jolly Sing Along is a time for the SMES student body to gather and celebrate a marvelous holiday season, but it is also a time for our fabulous students to reveal amazing musical styles and selections from their repertoire.  This year our fifth grade students played “Jolly Old St. Nicholas” on recorders in two part harmony. Fourth graders used body percussion as part of “Over the River and Through the Woods” while third grade used AB form in “Hanukah, Hunakah”. Second graders sang “Up On A Housetop” with unpitched percussion technique and first grade performed “La Pinata” in Spanish.  Kindergarten completed the musical performance by singing “The Twelve Days of Christmas” accompanied by gestures for each of the twelve gifts!
