Washington and Libertyville Elementarys to Present their Spring Concert

The third and fourth grade students of both Washington and Libertyville Elementary Schools will be combining forces to present their 2011 Spring Concert "Jazz: A Swingin’ Celebration".  This is a program that will bring some songs to the audience that will have them leaving the Sondheim Center, in Fairfield, snapping their fingers and tapping their toes. 

The audience will be treated to a brief history of a truly American form of music, Jazz.  The Blues, Swing, Dixieland......all of these will help show and shape the historical journey of Jazz in America.  Songs include pieces written just for this particular show such as Jazz, Jazz is on its Way and The Blues.  Besides the particular selections, there will also be a few recognizable, time-tested favorites from artists such as Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong.

So, be cool cats and make sure to clear your schedules, shake your blues, and come hear the works and efforts of our Third Grade students, Fourth Grade students and the Fourth Grade Ensemble.

The concert will be Monday, April 18th at 7:00 PM.  Admission is free.  If you are bringing students to perform, they should be at the Sondheim Center at 6:30.  The program should be approximately 45 minutes.  Come and Enjoy!!!
