Sanborn Central School performs spring concert

By Shania Cornelius (Sanborn Central Journalism Class) and Sanborn Weekly Journal staff

There were many actions that went with the songs sung by the Pre-K through second grade students at the annual spring concert at Sanborn Central. Their age group seems to enjoy performing with energy and actions needed to enhance the music.

On April 25, Sanborn Central held its annual spring concert. The music was chosen by the chorus instructor, Jenny Easton, and the band instructor, Janae West. The concert started with the fifth grade band playing “There’s a Hole in My Bucket,” then the sixth and seventh graders joined them to play “Cowboy Cattle Drive.” Both pieces were performed at contest. The sixth and seventh graders then played a beautiful classic, “America the Beautiful.”

The ninth through 12th grade chorus then proceeded with their opening song “Send Down the Rain,” which they had performed at contest and received a superior rating. They then performed “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” before the seventh through eighth grade students joined them in performing “Si Si Ni Moja,” an African Folk song translating to “we are one.” The fifth through eighth graders ended with the song “Big World, Small World,” to add more of a concept into the theme of “we are one.”

The third through sixth grade started off with a catchy folk song, the “Crawdad song,” which was followed by “Meet Me at the Fishing Hole.” The fourth graders then performed “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and “Hot Cross Buns” with their recorders. Pre-K through second grade started with “Once I Caught a Fish Alive” followed by “Baby Beluga” and a favorite of the elementary students, “Baby Shark.” The eighth through twelfth grade band then ended the concert with their four songs “Darklands March,” “The Masque of Red Death,” “The Legend of El Muerto,” and “Heartland.”

The entire senior class received a four-year certificate for either band, chorus, or both. Students receiving a four year certificate in chorus were Royce Hunter, Cole Moody, Kendra Morgan, Levi Nicholson, Austin Schmit, and Sawyer Senska. Students receiving a certificate in band were Renee Farmer and Adriana Salas. The two students who received a certificate for all four years in both band and chorus were Madi Moody and Abby Vermeulen.
