Show Choir Dazzles at First Performance of the Year

Songs from The Sound of Music, Annie and Bye Bye Birdie filled the auditorium.

Sandpiper Show Choir of rocked the multi-purpose room Wednesday night with their harmony, clarity, movement and a performing quality that would have made any parent proud.

The 33-member show choir of fourth and fifth graders performed music from Newsies, The Sound of Music, Annie, Disney’s Friends for Change and Bye Bye Birdie. A reception followed the performance. 

A relatively new group, the show choir was started in October 2010 under the direction of Susie Jimenez, a teacher at Sandpiper Elementary School. The enrichment program offered the students an opportunity to develop their music skills through a study of vocal production techniques, music reading, sight singing and performing quality choral literature.

“I am so impressed with how the students incorporated everything I tried to teach them and I couldn’t have been more proud," Jimenez said.

The students voluntarily rise early once a week to meet at 7:30 a.m. for practice.

“I am amazed at the dedication that went into this," principal Linda McDaniel said. "And they definitely rose to the occasion.”
