Oconee County Elementary Honors Chorus

My fabulous colleagues and I were so fortunate to be able to start a county-wide Honors Chorus this year and it was a great success! We have had this vision for quite a while and were so excited to see it come to fruition. It was definitely hard work and a lot of hours to organize, but so worth it to provide such a rich choral experience for the finest young singers in our county.

Twenty-five 4th and 5th graders were selected from each school through an audition process. The students rehearsed together at each school to prepare the music and then rehearsed the music together on a Saturday in March. We were honored to have Mrs. Carol Reeves, the artistic director of the Georgia Children's Chorus, as our guest clinician. She worked with the students throughout the day on their 6 selected pieces and then they presented a concert that afternoon for parents and community members. We were so proud of our Oconee County singers!

E-I-E-I Oops!

Our 1st graders did such a fabulous job of presenting this year's Spring Musical, "E-I-E-I Oops!" by John Jacobson and John Higgins. They were such a precious group of farmers and farm animals! Check out a few pictures from the show...
