The chorus, under the direction of Katie Burdick, also performed for the Whigham students at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18, in the school cafetorium and again that evening for parents and guests at the December PTA meeting.

The program offered a variety of choral selections with the theme of this year’s concert being “Light the World.” The students played recorders, Orff instruments and rhythm instruments. Aselect group also choreographed a hip hop dance to Destiny’s Child’s 8 Days of Christmas.

The chorus is composed of fourth and fifth grade students who are trained in proper vocal production, music-reading skills, and in recorder and resonator bell playing techniques. In addition to performance skills, the students are studying different classical composers and periods of musical history.

The school is located in Cutler Bay.
