The Fairview Songbirds are about to begin rehearsals. ANY 4th or 5th grade student interested in singing is encouraged to attend our first rehearsal beginning on Thursday, December 2, 2021. Rehearsals will be held on Thursday mornings and afternoons in the Fairview gymnasium.
The choir will be split into 2 equal choirs for practices. Half of the choir will meet on Thursday before school (7:30am – 8:15am) while the other half will meet on Thursday after school (3:25 – 4:10pm).
2020 was an extremely important year for the The Fairview Songbirds. The Songbirds were invited to perform at the Missouri Music Educators Association (MMEA) Conference which was held at the Tan-Tar-A Conference Center in Osage Beach, MO on January 23, 2020. The president of MMEA, Brian Reeves wrote,
“To perform at MMEA represents the highest statewide honor to which a school music ensemble can aspire. 180 ensembles from around the state applied to perform. The MMEA Conference hosts 3,600 registrants with total foot traffic of 10,000 attendees over the course of the four-day event.”
Of the 180 ensembles that applied, 32 ensembles were chosen, and Fairview was one of ONLY 3 elementary ensembles selected. To say I’m proud of our students is an understatement!!
