Elementary Students Entertained at the Winter Concert

Kindergarten and 1st grade students dressed in a snow theme for the performance.

The Elementary concert was titled The Big Chill (Hoping For A Snow Day) , which depicted the kindergarten and first grade students as “snowmen” and “snowflakes”; the second and third grade students as “students”; and the fourth and fifth grade students as “teachers.” The concert storyline, as directed by CTA’s music teacher, Mr. Jeremy Holtrop, included students posing as CTA teachers/administrators. Through twelve songs, memorized lines, and great costuming, the performance showed how students and teachers are more alike than different when it comes to wanting snow days and what they do on their days off.

Several kindergarten, first, and second grade students had the opportunity to play Boomwhackers during one of the songs. Boomwhackers are tuned percussion tubes that are lightweight, hollow, color-coded, plastic tubes, tuned to musical pitches by length. Second through fifth grade students featured soloists, and they even threw paper snowballs at one point during the concert for an added visual effect.

The 4th and 5th grade students incorporate many motions and hand movements into their songs.
