Senior citizens and other adults are encouraged to join Maple Avenue Elementary School fourthand fifth-graders as they form the third annual Maple Avenue Connection. The intergenerational choir first formed two years ago when Retired and Senior Volunteer Program volunteers, Maple Avenue grandparents and parents, and other citizens sang with students at their spring concert.
Four rehearsals are scheduled this year to prepare the group for its performance at the Maple Avenue Spring Concert beginning at 7 p.m. on May 13. The rehearsals will be in the school music room from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 3 and 10, and in the gymnasium from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on May 12 and from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on May 13. Refreshments will be served after each rehearsal.
The school’s spring concert, “Feelin’ Good,” will celebrate the importance of humor and laughter in our lives. It will be filled with wonderful music that has been cleverly written to bring a smile to the faces of all who hear it. Adults will sing the concert finale with students.
People interested in joining the choir and able to attend the four rehearsals and the concert performance should contact Maple Avenue music teacher Terry L. Fojtik by April 30. Fojtik can be reached at (262) 246-4220.
Maple Avenue Elementary School is located at W240 N6059 Maple Ave., Sussex.
