SPRING CONCERT

What is one of the best parts of your favorite movies? The music, of course!

The WYIS elementary and secondary Spring Concerts will transport you to a variety of classic films through music by students singing and playing musical instruments.

The music students have worked hard to put on a Spring Concert that you are sure to enjoy. Elementary students will be performing on ukulele, our new keyboard mallet instruments, recorders, and more. The Grade 5 students will present their premiere performance on their band instruments. The secondary band and choir students will be presenting an exciting compilation of music from Disney movies and more. Join us for this exciting musical experience. Secondary Spring Concert is TONIGHT - Wednesday, May 12, at 6:30 PM. Elementary Spring Concert is Friday, May 14, at 8:30 AM.
