6 I The Lovell Chronicle I January 29, 2015 LES fifth-graders perform at All-State Music host night concert in Sheridan BY DAVID PECK A group of Lovell fifth-grad- ers were thrilled to perform on the big stage last week after be- ing selected for the opening night concert of the 2015 Wyoming All- State Music Conference at Sheri- dan High School. Lovell Elementary School Music Director Chauna Bischoff said she heard about the oppor- tunity while speaking with Cody East Side Elementary School mu- sic teacher Emily Andrews, ele- mentary school vice president of the Wyoming Music Educators Association, which sponsors All- State Music along with the Wy- oming High School Activities Association. She submitted a video of the school's spring concert, which in- cluded the current fifth-graders, who were then fourth-graders. The WMEA board chose Lovell Elementary to perform as the opening performance of the Sun- day night concert that kicks off All-State Music. "They requested guitars and all of the things we do in 30 min- utes," Bischoff said. "The kids were so fast getting ready that we were three seconds under 30 min- utes with everything." The fifth-graders performed eight numbers in the concert at the Sheridan High School Gym: "The William Tell Overture" on rhythm sticks, the "North Skelton Sword Dance," "Squanto's Song ' and "Bile Them Cabbage Down" by the recorder ensemble, "This Land is Your Land" on guitars, "What Do You Do With a Music Teacher?" on guitar with singing and two pure singing numbers, "Still in My Heart" and "This Flag We Fly" in honor of men and wom- en in the military serving their country. i!i!ii:i !!iiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiii%i; ' iii]!iiii!iiiii!iiiiiiiiiii!!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Lovell fifth-graders performing at the Wyoming All-State Music opening night concert Jan. 18 were (front row, l-r) Chance Abraham, Brodin Lockner, (second row) Bishop Trainor, Ralph Moreno, Dallen Mangus, Amos Monterde, Kane Ferguson, Sam Cornia, Jastin Joy, (third row) Michelle Lake, Ashlynn Fink, HaileyRael, Alyssa Rael, Jordan Woodford, Chelsi Green, Shaylee Bowers, Mykaela Sippel, Chevelle Jolley, Manda Mayes, Ashton Harper, (back row) Quinn Lindsay and Riley Heindl. Not pictured are Ben Hawley and Krystalyn Palmer. "They did awesome," Bischoff said. "The audience laughed and cheered. It was amazing." Bischoff said the fifth-graders came before school and practiced to get ready for the performance during part of November and all of December. Then on Saturday morning before the conference the students met at the school in Lovell to run through the entire program in order. On the Sunday of the per- formance, Jan. 18, the students bused to Sheridan for a dress re- hearsal that began at 4:30 p.m. at Sheridan High School. With some time between that and the 7:30 performance, Lovell native Ja- nine Goodrich, a family and con- sumer science teacher at SHS, opened up her classroom to the Lovell students to rest and relax before the performance. "It was way nice of her," Bis- choff said. The students were a bit awed by the big crowd in the gym, but Bischoff said they rose to the oc- casion and performed well. "The other teachers were impressed with how they per- formed," she said, "how focused they were and how varied our pro- gram was." Performing were fifth-graders Hailey Rael, Alyssa Rael, Krysta- lyn Palmer, Chevelle Jolley, Ash- ton Harper, Manda Mayes, Ash- lynn Fink, Bishop Trainor, Dallen Mangus, Chance Abraham, Amos Monterde, Mykaela Sippel, Mi- chelle Lake, Broden Lockner, Riley Heindl, Ralph Moreno, Shaylee Bowers, Jordan Wood- ford, Quinn Lindsay, Kane Fergu- son, Sam Cornia, Jastin Joy, Ben Hawley and Chelsey Green. Due to the late hour and the students' age, they returned home following their performance but had to go by way of Billings due to a crash on the mountain. Performing after them were the Sheridan High School Sympho- ny Orchestra, the Sheridan Coun- ty Children's and Youth Chorale, the Sheridan High School African Marimba group and the Sheridan County Super Choir. "It was quite an honor (to be included)," Bischoff said. Bischoff said she appreciates the support she received from Lovell educators including Supt. Rick Woodford and wife Jennifer, music teachers Linnea Dickson and Jessica Schreiner, Lovell's all-state choir members, Kathy Harrison, LES Principal Cheri Hoffman, teacher Lindsay Lind- say and others, many of whom helped with staging and equip- ment and supervising the stu- dents since Bischoff stayed in Sheridan for another two days during the conference. "The teachers (in Sheridan) were so impressed that my princi- pal and superintendent were there to support and help us," she said.
