You are encouraged to be in the gym at Erma Siegel Elementary School at 7:00 o'clock Thursday night, March 6th. The room will be filled with the voices of 200 students celebrating Music In Our Schools Month! Parents should arrive at 135 West Thompson Lane by 6:15PM to have time to get seated before the free concert begins.
Murfreesboro City School's Director Linda Gilbert commented, "It is amazing to see this group of students come together and perform as one choir."
The evening of music features students from Black Fox, Bradley, Cason Lane, Discovery School, Erma Siegel, Hobgood, John Pittard, Mitchell-Neilson, Northfield and Scales. Music ranges from contemporary to classical and spotlights a wide array of composers.
Dr. Gilbert also was quick to recognize the hard work and dedication put into the concert by Murfreesboro City School music teachers Carolene Goff, Amy Swanson, Karen Blooding, Tony Hartman, Ryan Stewart, Michele Good and Melanie Mock, who will serve as conductors. The masters of ceremony are Cindy Peaster and Colin York.
The evening promises to be a spectacular event showcasing the talent of Murfreesboro City School's student choirs along with some songs being accompanied by the popular Steel de Boro band from John Pittard Elementary School.
Dr. Gilbert concluded, “Our students and staff work hard to pull this together and their performance is magnificent.”
March's Music in our Schools Month is recognized and sponsored by the National Association for Music Education.
