Per Arcola Elementary Contact: Sam Woodard
We are excited to announce that Arcola Elementary Chorus has been selected from thousands of applicants to sing at the 2009 Cherry Blossom Festival on April 2nd. As one of the first Loudoun County elementary groups to be selected, these students will be joined by performers from all over the country. They will sing from the Tidal Basin Stage at 1:45 and have the opportunity to see both the Elko HS Marching Band from Nevada and the National Hand Dance performance. "It is a great honor to be selected from thousands of applicants across the nation," Jennifer Leslie, Arcola's music teacher, beamed with pride over her students’ accomplishments. The Parents and students are just as excited. "What an incredible opportunity Mrs. Leslie has provided for our children" says parent Linda Foresha.
These 5th grade students will also have the chance to sing a portion of the Cherry Blossom performance to the School Board on March 24th during "Music in our Schools Month."
