2nd & 3rd Grade Winter Musical Programs
December 8, 2023
2nd Grade - 10:00 am/3rd Grade- 1:45 pm
Rodgers and Hammerstein. Lennon and McCartney. Webber and Rice. Songwriting collaborations - where one person writes the music and another writes the lyrics - have been around for ages. But then it begs the question: Where would the music be without the lyrics? And where would the lyrics be without the music? To answer this, we visit the songwriters of Fa La La Land, who are actively engaged in creating their latest cooperative effort for the upcoming holiday season.
Parents - watch for more information from your child's teacher.
