Well, the Veteran's Day program was a great success and now here we are...almost at Christmas! It's hard to believe half of the school year is almost over. WOW!
The chorus has a lot of Christmas music to learn between now and the third week of December. They will be singing at the Hilton Head-Savannah International airport again this year and they are SOOO excited! Our Christmas concert at the school is always a favorite because we get to sing carols at the old school house and eat cookies and drink hot chocolate! Yum!
During the months of Nov. and Dec. the general music classes will be learning about Peter Illich Tchaikovsky, a composer from the 19th Century who was born in Russia. This composer is a favorite of the student's at EES as they love listening and learning about the famous ballet he wrote, "The Nutcracker"! I never pass up the chance to teach the students about the famous composer who wrote such beautiful music that the students hear around Christmas time.
That's about it for now. Hopefully we'll all survive Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks and come back ready to end the year on a great "note"!!
