Important information for Music
Starting in Grade 3, Dennett students learn to play the soprano recorder in music class. Students purchase their own recorders through the school at a cost of $5.00.
Students that own a recorder already must have it approved by Ms. Cardinal for use in class.
All Grade 4 students perform with their recorders each year in the winter and spring concerts. Interested 5th and 6th graders also have the opportunity to perform in these concerts. They must attend extra rehearsals to prepare the music.
Beginning with the school year 2015-2016 chorus is offered as an after school activity for 5th and 6th graders.
We rehearse on Wednesdays from dismissal time until 3:30. Parents are responsible for transportation.
We present two concerts during the year; a December winter concert and a May spring concert.
Concert dress is expected for all performances. Girls should wear a white blouse or sweater and a black skirt or black pants. Boys should wear a white long-sleeved shirt, a tie, and black pants.
