Music is Alive and Well!

On October 10, 2008, seven talented students from Graham Elementary School, and their music teacher, Mrs. Barrow, hitched a ride to Samford University with the music teachers and students from Talladega County Schools.

They were all going to the Alabama Music Educators' Association's 2008 Elementary Music Festival. This is the third year that Samford University has graciously allowed AMEA to hold this event on their campus.

Students and teachers were at rehearsals for hours on Friday but the time spent practicing was well worth it!

The students filled the stage that evening in the lovely Wright Auditorium. The sound of the singing was beautiful and well prepared. The playing of Orff instruments and movements of smaller groups of students filled the stage and auditorium with creativity, excitement, and beautiful sound. All of this was produced by fourth and fifth grade students from all over the state of Alabama. Do they want to work hard and go back again? You bet!
