Garinger’s performing arts – dance, chorus, band and orchestra- will be performing a winter concert 6 p.m. Dec. 13 in the Garinger auditorium. There is no admission charge.
This is a formal assement and it will show the progress students made since the start of the school year.
Starting with the basics, learning the proper use of the muscles, the voice and learning to read music has prepared the students for this performance. They have practiced as if it were at a sports team. The students are learning how to work with one another. This is a team event they are all in it together. They understand that this is a performance, if they mess up, they cannot start over.
Mrs. Thompson, the chorus director, expects this concert to be very successful for students, staff and parents.”The Performing Arts teaches discipline,” she reminded. The students that will be performing in this winter concert are the ones who have been disciplined and know their music and where they stand. “They have put in the time and work.”
So, if you enjoy music, come out and join the performing arts in their winter showcase. Everyone is welcome to come and see the results of the performing arts classes. This is the second arts performance since Garinger’s chorus restarted last year. They are looking forward to another successful show.
