Unison in Union County

On Saturday March 7th six students, Ali Barrier, Demetrius Barnes, Kaela Clark, Heather High, Sage Kelly, and India Middleton, participated in the 8th Annual Unison Festival at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw, NC.

The Unison Festival is a county-wide music festival that brings the top music students from every elementary school in the county together for a day of music making.

These six students auditioned and won the spots to represent Marshville Elementary at the Festival.There are three ensembles: choir, recorder, and Orff.

The students have been working diligently to learn the music for the festival since January in order to be well prepared. On Saturday the students arrived at 8 A.M. and began their rehearsals learning how their part fit in with the other harmonies, and learning the rigorous choreography.

Music selections from the Festival included “Pure Imagination,” “Ease On Down the Road,” “Footloose,” and “Happy.”

The concert was a huge success and their hard work paid off! See for yourself- watch the videos from the concert:
