The choir at Fairview is composed of fourth and fifth graders and meets once a week - before or after school - to practice. However, due to the current health concerns involved with Covid-19, choir will be not be meeting during the 2020-2021 school year.
Last year 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!!
