Damascus Middle School Chorus Exploratory Class Brightens the Day!

A group of students singing on a stage. On Monday, November 3, the second group of sixth-graders to take Chorus Exploratory concluded their class with a performance. Chorus teacher Ms. Sue Spirup and her student teacher Mr. Dennis continued the musical trip through time with selections that followed the scope and sequence of the sixth-grade social studies curriculum.

Included in the performance were two cowboy songs sung in tribute to the West; a Native American song voiced by a chief pleading with his descendants to seek education to combat their difficulties; and two songs by the great twentieth-century composers Irving Berlin and George Gershwin. The crowd favorite was “You Are My Sunshine,” which concluded with everyone singing along! The peppy performers who brought some sunshine to a dreary November day were as follows: Tristan A., Becca B., Bailey D., Tyler D., Joshua H., Coltin P., Cameron R., Logan S., and Alex W.
