Students, teachers, family members and friends packed Mary Eliot Chapel yet again for this year’s Lower School Winter Program. Junior Kindergarten through fourth grade students performed songs representative of a variety of holidays and the winter season with direction from Lower School Music Teachers Barb Spieler and Kathy Norvell.
Spieler shared, “The Beasley Winter Program offers a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the traditions that bind families and communities together. Our Beasley musicians shared pieces about Hanukkah, Chinese New Year, Diwali, Christmas and Kwanzaa.”
Students ended the program with a crowd favorite, Peace The Whole World Over. Each verse of the song used the word “peace” in a language spoken by one of our MICDS families, including Japanese, Spanish, Hindi, French, Hebrew, Korean and Arabic. To top it off, Head of School Jay Rainey played the piano accompaniment for this finale to the surprise and delight of students and families alike.
