Music filled the air at Lawrenceville Elementary School on Friday, Dec. 13 for the annual winter holiday concert under the direction of Music Director Daniel Beal.
Children in first, second and third grades performed musical
selections based on the theme of “We Wish You Peace.” Festive “toe-tapping” songs
focusing on unity, peace and spreading joy were featured, reinforcing the school’s
character education mission. Featured songs were performed in four different
languages, Spanish, Hebrew, Swahili and English.
The stage was adorned with holiday decorations with musical notes and doves, created by the children and Maria Raimondo, art specialist. Ed Francis, physical education specialist, directed the lighting and sound. Director Dan Beal provided the accompaniment on the piano while the children sang, danced, and played rhythm instruments and the chimes.
