Scenes from Simmons
Steve Fisher, Director of the Pennsylvania Girlchoir and the Keystone State Boychoir visited Simmons Elementary last week. He taught a South African song to students in grades 3 and 4, including rhythmic hand motions and two-part harmony. Mrs. Bridget MacFarland, general music teacher, will collaborate with Mr. Fisher to include the South African song as part of the spring concert.
Children in grades 3, 4, and 5 are invited to audition for the Pennsylvania Girlchoir and Keystone State Boychoir. Please see the flyer below for more details.
