Avery sings “Before the Parade Passes By” to an enthusiastic audience.
Fourth grade students and the Whittier Singers (a third through fifth grade after-school choir) presented a choral and recorder showcase performance on Thursday evening, May 9, in the gymnasium at Whittier Elementary School. Fourth graders presented hits by Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Cyndi Lauper, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Journey, Whitney Houston, and Queen. The Whittier Singers sang songs of encouragement and selections by Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga, and Lauren Daigle. The groups joined forces for several musical numbers, including a choral and recorder collaboration. Music teacher Evan McIntyre directed the show.
