O.H. Somers Music News

Fourth Grade Recorder Concert

As many of our students have, this year, the Fourth Graders started playing the recorder at the

beginning of the school year and have been practicing ever since they got the recorders in their hands.

All of the hard work they have put in is about to be put to use and showcased for friends and family to see! Tuesday, November 15th , the 4th graders will have the opportunity to perform at O.H. Somers Elementary School. This performance will take place at 7:00 PM in the O.H. Somers Gymnasium. They will be demonstrating a shortened version of the learning process as well as some of the songs that they have learned. From the first note they learned to the first song, these students are ready to put on a show!
