Over the Rainbow
mtringali ::: Lesley Ellis School, News & Notes

Lesley Ellis School first and second graders were featured in a video montage at the Boston Pops Opening Night on May 13th at Symphony Hall singing "Over the Rainbow." 

Susie Craft, director of grades 1/2 Chorus, worked with the children on the song and then submitted a video of their performance to the "Boston Pops Over the Rainbow" project.  It was selected from videos throughout the country and last night Keith Lockhart personally congratulated the students on their rendition of the song and even provided free tickets to all the grade 1/2 students, their families and teachers. 

Congratulations to Susie and grades 1/2 Chorus on an excellent job!
