Pecan Grove Primary School students performed in their first music program Dec. 16, a Christmas concert entitled “Pelicans in the Snow.”

The students performed compositions that focused on their vocal abilities, as well as their ability to play the Orff instruments. Orff instruments are special kinds of xylophones and metallophones made especially for children: they are appropriately sized, and have removable keys to aid the children in playing the correct notes.

The music performed on the concert was from many different countries of the world, including England, the Czech Republic, Germany, and the United States.

After the concert, the students were treated to cake and goodies at a reception given by the parents.  

The music department at Pecan Grove Primary School is under the direction of Lisa Grimsley. The principal is Margie Meyers, and the assistant principal is Candy Wikman.
