The musical project, however, does not end at the CD, which parents are now ordering and Chaevalier said will be delivered mid-June. On Thursday, May 9, in an all-school event, each grade will be wearing costumes of their choice and performing the song live for their parents and friends.
Quackenbush said his grade is going to wear all black and sunglasses, "Because they're singing a blues song," said Carlson, while the third graders are planning to wear tie-dyed T-shirts.
While the children all expressed excitement for the performance, 11-year-old Nick Smith said he had the pre-performance jitters.
"I'm a little nervous. You're sort of under pressure," said Smith, who was concerned, as well as Quackenbush, that he may forget some of the words on the day of the performance.
All together, the students said they enjoyed studying music with Chaevalier and that it was nice to be able to make the music with all of their friends.
"I liked that you didn't have to do it alone," said Quackenbush.
The performance will be Thursday, May 29, at Shaker High School. For more information, contact the Blue Creek Elementary School at 785-7451.""
