Elementary School Spring Concert Showcase


Adamston, North View, Salem and Wilsonburg Elementary Schools Host Spring Concert Showcase at Liberty High School

For the first time ever, Adamston, North View, Salem and Wilsonburg Elementary Schools’ band, choir, and string programs came together to host a spring concert showcase on Tuesday, May 14, at Liberty High School.

The program’s students were excited to have the opportunity to take the stage with their peers. “It’s a once in a life time opportunity being able to perform with these other schools for the first time ever. It’s really cool that this happened”, said Adamston fifth grader, Teagan Hardin.

Tuesday evening was the first time that any of the different schools have performed with each other. The showcase was kicked off with the strings performance. The performance showcased a multitude of folk songs. The strings program was followed by the choir whose performance was themed around the weather. The choir’s show included the likes of “Here comes the rain”, “Rain drops keep falling on my head”, and many more. The showcase was wrapped up by a performance from the band. The band included 80 students from all of the schools performing a mixture of simple tunes. They surprised the audience with a performance of “Country Roads” and “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars. The strings program was under the direction of Chase Kennedy, while the band and choir were under the direction Joe Jedju.

“The band students have just learned their instruments and have only been playing since August 2018. By performing the pieces “Country Roads” and “Count on Me” shows the students advancement in their learning”, said Jedju.

The showcase gave the students the opportunity to display their skills and talents. To Jedju it is important for students to have fun and use music as their outlet.

Adamston fifth grader Jeremiah Williams said, “When I’m happy or when I’m sad I can just practice my trumpet and it helps me express how I feel”.

For Jedju it is important that his kids have the opportunity to perform the music they have worked hard at learning so parents and the public can enjoy their talents. Jedju has had his band students perform at various public places such as the Harrison County Senior Center and the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library.
