Hitting the high notes
From patriotic tunes and a Nigerian boat song to songs about green, speckled frogs and Pete the Cat, those attending the Osakis Elementary School 2018 Spring Choir Concert on Thursday, May 10 were treated to enthusiastic performances.
The concert at the Osakis High School Auditorium opened with Osakis third graders singing the Star Spangled banner, many of them wearing military uniforms from their families and all of them with hands over hearts or displaying a salute.
The third graders also performed America, America the Beautiful, Obwisana — a traditional children's song from Ghana, Africa — and Kye Kye Kule, an Akan call-and-response song.
The second graders took to the stage next, singing Spring Time, Eh Soom Boo Kawaya, Take Me Out to the Ball Game and Five Green and Speckled Frogs.
The first graders closed out the afternoon of music with I Have a Car, If You Need a Buddy, Going on a Picnic and Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes.
