Over 200 second grade students at Harry McKillop Elementary came together Thursday night to present their six-part music program for teachers and family members.
The musical featured decades-old favorites, including “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, “The Locomotion”, “Witch Doctor”, “Three Little Birds”, “Joy to the World”, and “Peppermint Twist”. Students not only sang enthusiastically throughout the half-hour program, but also performed different sets of choreography for each song. A number of students portrayed themed characters and incorporated various props.
Key performers were Remington Day as Witch Doctor; Maddux Clark as Sleepy Lion; Everett Bell, Ava Jones, Olivia Jones, and Kallie Womack at microphone; Reagan Perry on guitar; and Emma Pope and Jacqui Culp on ukulele.
The Harry McKillop Elementary second grade music program was a result of the diligence of the second grade class in conjunction with music director Pam Fortner.
