Wingate Elementary at the Unison Music Festival
Seven Wingate Elementary fifth graders participated in the 5th annual Unison Music Festival at Cuthbertson High School on Saturday, February 25, 2012. This all-county festival for 5th graders is sponsored by UCPS Elementary Music Teachers and features a chorus, a recorder ensemble, and an Orff ensemble. Participants are chosen by the music teacher at each elementary school based on attitude, aptitude and enthusiasm for music. Wingate students chosen for the festival chorus were Brenda Colin, Emily Lawrence, Carlos Sanchez, Rachel Stivaletti, and Ka’Shella Sturgis.
Two students, Madison Hunter and Mackenzie Staton were selected for the recorder ensemble. Students worked on the festival music at home and together at school beginning in early January to prepare for the big day. On the day of the festival, all students rehearsed together at Cuthbertson High School, and gave a final concert performance at 4:00 p.m. in the Cuthbertson High School Auditorium.
