On Thursday December 17 Van Duyn held their annual December Concert. Students in the band and chorus performed some of our favorite holiday numbers and some simple classics under the direction of Van Duyn music teacher Katherine Hurne.
The band gave a Van-tastic performance where they showed us how far they had come with their instruments. From trying to figure out how to put them together, to being able to play small songs like Hot Cross Buns
, to finally being able to play Jingle Bells
. The chorus followed by singing Santa Solfege
, Have a Happy Happy Holiday
and Frosty the Snowman
. The band consists of students in 4th
grade, while the chorus has 3rd
These Van-tasticly talented students played again for an evening concert at Van Duyn’s annual Family Fun in Learning night, which had a record number of people attending to listen to the concert and participate in holiday crafts. We at Van Duyn are very proud to have such talented students.
