MUSIC FOR OUR EARS

Skagway students and guest musicians filled the school for two wonderful concerts over the past two weeks. Piano students of all ages taught by Dottie Demark were first up, and several guest artists also sang. Then last Tuesday, the annual Spring Concert and Talent Show featured student musicians conducted by David LeCompte, ballet, tap and hip-hop dancers taught by Mary McCaffrey and Margeaux Heaton, and even a rock and roll band tutored by Robert Murphy. The students showed amazing progress from the first of the year, playing several tunes so well that they surprised their teachers and had the full house clapping loudly. Music’s not only back at Skagway School, it’ thriving again.
