Middle School Band Middle School Chorus

Island County Music Festival!

While I’m sitting at the District Music Festival laughing hysterically at everything Mrs. Aimee Bushey says to the chorus, I thought I should probably get some pictures from the Island County Music Festival up on the blog!

We were SO lucky to have Mr. Andy Smith from Charlotte Central School conduct our middle school band. Ms. Kauffeld was lucky enough to spend two weeks student teaching with Mr. Smith during her senior year of college. He’s an incredible teacher, music, and human. The band music was very challenging, especially for our instrumentalists that just began this year! But our students worked hard, coming in to practice before school and working with each other to figure out their parts.

Our chorus conductor is another friend of Ms. Kauffeld’s, Mr. Aram Barsumian! He teaches at Williamstown Elementary and Middle school. He is a terrific trombone player and contra-dancer! Our chorus music was difficult, but Folsom represented our school SO well by being very prepared and professional in their work that day. Oh, and there were some important human knots.
