FMES Children’s Choir:

Our students have the amazing opportunity to be involved in a Children’s Choir right here at the school! Portland School of Music & Dance is showcasing students in our new after school program for both our Lower Elementary (Tuesdays) and our Upper Elementary (Thursdays). Students receive a fun and exciting introduction to singing, through echo songs, part-singing and individual performance opportunities! Students learn the basics of vocal technique in a playful, fun-filled setting! And the best part is that our students get to show off all they’ve learned in their exciting performance for family and friends on Thursday, May 25th at 5pm! (See flyer attached)

With 11 classes and a performance, it’s something you won’t want to miss! Enroll today! ($119 or 2 payments of $60) Classes begin March 9th!
