Wesleyan middle school chorus students performed their spring concert on Monday, May 8. Both the fifth and sixth grade chorus and the advanced chorus performed songs from a variety of genres and featured soloists and single-gender performances.
Middle and high school students began preparing for their Christmas program shortly after their fall concert in early October. Last evening, they performed for the Wesleyan community and wowed the audience with their Christmas cheer!
Mrs. Ables’ fourth grade students have been hard at work spreading Christmas cheer and learning about ceramics as they create nativity scenes. Elizabeth Ables, art teacher, started this tradition during her first year at Wesleyan school.
As part of the Great American Marching Band, Vivian Hosier ’24, Brady O’Shields ’24, and Jack Thomas ’23 performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, which was broadcast to 50 million viewers, in addition to 3 million in-person spectators. Hosier performed in the color guard, and O’Shields and Thomas performed as instrumentalists. All three are also veteran members of the Marching Wolves.
