During May the students continued to develop their skills on woodwind instruments and strings and to prepare for their largest performance, the International Festival at Cerritos Elementary that was expecting an attendance of over 400!

On May 29 that concert was presented.  It was their final concert on their Recorders and consisted of four short pieces representing several countries;  An American Spiritual- “When The Saints Go Marching In“;  Germany – “Minuet In G“; An  English Shaker tune – “Tis A Gift To Be Simple“; and a Jewish folksong – “Hatikvah“.

The students wore their new CYO shirts for the first time and following the concert were able to take their recorders home to keep!

Please see the excerpt from their performance:
