A quick note from Mrs. Phillips, your child's Fine Arts Teacher at Bert Edwards.
I'd like to let you know that our staff and students are working hard at Bert Edwards to put together a Virtual Christmas production for your viewing pleasure this holiday, in lieu of our usual in-person Christmas Concert. We are hoping to have the video ready for viewing for the last week of school.
We have decided to keep things simple this year with a reading of The Nutcracker (by E.T.A. Hoffman) and the music of the Nutcracker Suite by Peter Tchaikovsky. While the older students will be acting out the story, the younger students are working on dances to the music.
I have set up some specific times for the recording of your child's performance piece on stage. Your child's class will be presenting the dance to The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and we will be recording their performance on Thursday, December 10.
There are no particular costume requirements for this year, but feel free to dress your child according to the theme, or just have them wear some nice clothes if you wish.
Looking forward to sharing our production of The Nutcracker with you!
