The saying, sing your hearts out, means a lot to the Foothills Elementary Choir. I mean it when I say, I had chills up and down my spine because of the beautiful sounds. They practice before school on Tuesdays for one hour, rain or shine. Their choir room fills the whole school with energetic music that gets you up and danc'in. You can tell the kids love what they are learning in choir, by the way they sing.
All the practice and time the students put in was about to pay off for the big Winter Concert. The students stood behind the closed doors, prepared and ready to knock the socks off. It was a night to remember, and for all the parents and friends to enjoy. Students came in skipping and singing Do, Ra, Me, followed by other Holiday and Christmas songs. At the end of the concert all the kids surrounded the audience and sang a dance number to Jingle Bells. It was so fun, even some of the parents got up and started to dance.
I asked Thomas, a fourth grader at Foothills Elementary, what was your favorite part of the concert? He said " I like the 7 Feet of Snow song because it would be fun to have no school and snow that covers the house." I think the whole choir enjoyed performing the song too.
The Foothills Choir doesn't only perform at school functions, they also perform at Barnes and Noble. Barnes and Noble night brought K-6 grade singers and speakers in celebration of our Veterans. I can tell that Mrs. Branam is very passionate about her students and works hard to make sure they are having fun, but still getting the job done. Thank you to the Foothills Choir for a great show and thank you to the principal, Mrs. Donahue, for having respectful and wonderful students in choir.
