While fifth-graders were the stars of the show, everyone was invited to use their vocal chords to embrace the holiday spirit at the annual winter concert at Fairfield Elementary School.
The concert featured the fifth-grade orchestra, chorus and band. Students were dressed in red, green and white, with a few ugly sweaters mixed in, and also donned Santa hats and reindeer ears. Audience members were invited to participate in holiday sing-a-longs during the transitions between ensembles. There were two shows for Fairfield students on Dec. 19 and one for parents on Dec. 20.
The band was led by Kristin Hodulick, the chorus by Jeanine Yako and the orchestra by Michael Molloy. Among the featured songs were “Jingle Bells” and the “Abominable Snowman Chase.”
