In an inaugural event, music teachers from every school in the Snoqualmie Valley School District will take the stage tomorrow evening, May 9th, in the Mount Si Auditorium to show students and parents they can indeed “practice what they preach” each day in their music classes.
The performance begins at 7PM. Admission is $5. Kids under 6 are free. All money raised will support music scholarships distributed by Snoqualmie Valley Music Boosters. Those scholarships include things like music camps, lessons and workshops.
North Bend Elementary Band Teacher, Lorraine Thurston, says, “There will be a nice mix of instrumental and vocal performances, as well as a variety of styles.” A big band piece ends the show, which will last about an hour.
The idea of a faculty music performance had been discussed a lot in the past, but this is the first time the music teachers have seen it through to the performance. They are all very excited. Lorraine says the group doesn’t take it’s self too seriously so it should be a fun show.
The event is also an opportunity for students transitioning to a new SVSD school next year to meet their future music teacher. The Snoqualmie Valley Music Faculty begins at 7PM in the MSHS Auditorium.
