Wingate Students in All-County Music Festival
In celebration of National Music in Our Schools Month, seven Wingate 5th graders participated in the 7th annual Union County Fifth Grade Music Festival at Cuthbertson High School on Saturday, March 8, 2014. This all-county festival for fifth graders is sponsored each year 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 Tim Alonso, Autumn Brewer, Samuel David, Hanna Olmedo, and Alaisha Tobias. Shenique and Shernika Francis 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.
