Fifth graders join in state chorus
Five fifth-graders from Delmar Elementary School participated in the first Maryland Honor Elementary Demonstration Chorus on Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Baltimore Convention Center. Natasha Holland, Kevin Nichols, Olivia Smith, Rhiannon Smith and Sarah Smith were part of an almost 100-member choir of fifth graders from all over Maryland. Before the convention day, these fifth graders had to rehearse during their recess time with their music teacher, S. Belcher. On the day of the event they learned new ways to sing and sound better, rehearsed for three sessions (one in the morning and two in the afternoon), participated in activities on break and lunch times and performed at the end of the day. They each received a certificate for their participation and made new friends as well. Chaperones and volunteers were Gretchen Nichols, who helped the music teacher, Ashley Rowbottom, Roland and Sharon Smith, Lisa Smith and Lori and Rick Smith.
