Thank you to everyone in the community for supporting our music and fine arts at Cherry Valley Elementary!
Keep your eyes open in both the "Music Performances and Events" page, as well as the "Quick Notes" page of my website for Newsletters at the end of every trimester which will contain all of the wonderful things we are doing and learning about this year in music!
Please note that any performances and events below which would take place within one month before the event will be highlighted in blue:
At the very least, audio recordings may be available on this website of the wonderful effort of the students in some way in lieu of live performances if any future performances do not take place. The students have worked hard, and I want to make sure their lights shine by showcasing them in some way!
Thank you so much for all who came out, performed, and/or supported the students at the BMO Harris Bank Center for The National Anthem Performance at the IceHogs game on Sunday November 3, 2019! The lights of the students certainly shined upon the community! Please enjoy their audio performance of The Star Spangled Banner!

We also may have an opportunity to share a recording or of our winter music with Cherry Vale Mall, as well as do some intra-school (within the building) caroling celebrating holidays and culture during this memorable and nostalgic time of the year! Pieces to practice at home will be under the list "Winter Songs".
In celebration of The RPS All-City Fine Arts Week from (March 2, 2020 through March 7, 2020), selected students will represent Cherry Valley at the Elementary All-City Elementary Arts and Music Festival on Saturday March 7, 2020 at 2pm at East High School. All from our community are welcome to attend.
Please feel free to continue to enjoy the following songs to practice and enjoy at home until the rescheduled concert has concluded and/or they are removed from the website!
Sing About Martin
The Dream of Martin Luther King
A Song of Peace
Follow The Drinking Gourd
Wade In The Water
This Little Light of Mine
Please keep in mind the following:
1. All songs are for educational purposes, and they are just plain fun!
2. Due to audio file setup and protection, a PC or laptop will only be able to access the audio files. Thank you for your understanding.
3. All songs are for rehearsal/practice/performance use, and are to remain on this website unless used for a performance/special event by the music instructor. All songs will be removed after their purposed events.
4. To honor and respect cultures, beliefs, etc., your child/children may be allowed to sing, quietly stand or sit and/or use instrumentation (discretion based upon limitation/prior notice by instructor with instrumentation for concert) on certain songs. Remember, while being respectful, it's about a wonderful experience for our kids and community together!
5. As with any song, practice, practice, practice outside of school and have fun!
Again, we thank you for supporting The Arts at
Cherry Valley Elementary!
