All City Choir Concert planned on March 13
The Washington Community School District will have an All City Choir Concert on Thursday, March 13.
Choirs from Stewart Elementary School’s second-graders, Julie Hill’s Sunrise Singers, John Runaas’s Middle School Concert Choir, and Mike Jewell’s High School Concert Choir will perform, according to a press release from the school district about this concert. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the gymnasium at Washington High School.
Linda Soukup, music teacher at Stewart Elementary, said this is the first time her students will participate.
“We have a second-grade volunteer choir here at Stewart, which has about 70 kids participating,” Soukup said. “We [the district’s choir directors] wanted to have representation from all of the schools, so I decided to try it with the second-graders to see how they do.”
She is happy and excited her students will be able to participate in the All City Choir Concert.
“There’s a very good group of kids in this choir, and these second-graders are really good singers,” she said.
The second-graders will sing three songs next Thursday, and the theme is caring.
“We’ll sing about caring from the Character Counts series,” Soukup said. “Topics include caring about the environment and people.”
Over 300 students will perform that evening. At the end, all of the choirs will come together and end the concert singing “Just Sing,” Soukup said.
A free-will donation will be taken for the music programs in the Washington School District, the press release said.
