Wingate Students Participate in All-County Festival
In celebration of national Music in Our Schools Month, four Wingate 5th graders participated in the 7th annual Union County Fifth Grade Music Festival at Cuthbertson High School on Saturday, March 7, 2015. 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 who sang in the festival chorus were Katie Brewer and Emma Sherrod. Haley Juarez and Jiyah Kelley played in 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.
