Decatur students participate in a hip-hop music concert
DECATUR — Thirdand fourth-grade classes at Decatur Northside Elementary participated in the annual Winter Music Concert in the school cafeteria Dec. 13. More than 100 area residents gathered to hear the students present the final work on which preparations began several weeks earlier.
Kristin Wages, Northside’s music specialist, led both groups in such songs as “Deck the Halls” and “Hip Hop Reindeer.”
First up was the third graders who performed a variation on Rudolph called “Turn Off That Nose,” followed by a pair of rap/hip-hop numbers called “Rap of the Presents” and “Hip Hop Reindeer,” each complete with a unique brand of moves.
The fourth graders followed with “Deck the Halls,” “Winter Fantasy” and “Foesta De Navidad.”
The concert concluded with both groups joining forces to perform the classic old English carol, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
