All County Music Festival
On February 4, 2017, students from across St. Lawrence County came together for SLCMEA’s All-County Music Festival B. Three students from Nightengale Elementary participated in the Elementary Chorus, performing four different selections. Autumn Harvey, Sophia Shaynak, and Tessa McGay represented Nightengale well. The pieces performed were The Tailor and the Mouse, Button Up Your Overcoat, Toucans Two, and A Song to End All War. The students spent all day in rehearsals, had the opportunity to work with area conductors (Nora Darling and Andrea Ellison), and finished the busy day with a wonderful afternoon concert at Ogdensburg Free Academy. Way to go Nighthawks!
Pictured above is Mrs. Nora Darling, Jefferson Elementary, conducting at the All-County event. .
