Dear BFIS Families and Friends, 

The children have been busy preparing a wonderful winter performance for family and friends.  This year, each grade level will be focusing on different traditions or musical genres popular in the winter season.  Please try to assure your child´s attendance for the concert, as all students work together to create their performances, remember performance is a team activity!! The details of the winter concert are:

Students in 5th grade have been rehearsing diligently for their upcoming concert, and even played a part in deciding their attire for the concert.  Students in 5th grade will need a plastic mug (like a coffee cup) and either a plain sweat in any colour OR an FUN WINTER SWEATER (see examples below) .  

Ugly Winter Sweaters Examples

         Explanation:  Students can design their own ‘silly winter sweater’ using fabric or foam cut outs, or perhaps they already have one hanging in a closet!  This is a great chance for them to be creative and have fun!  Here are some examples of  ¡¡¡winter sweaters’!

Looking forward to a wonderful concert!! -Ms. G!

Hello Parents and Students! This is Ms. G. I´m happy to be blogging about music in our school. I grew up in the United States, and recently moved to Barcelona from New York City. A little bit more about my professional background, I received my Bachelor´s in Music Performance from the Juilliard School, where I studied opera. I sang and worked as an Assistant Director with Opera Companies for many years before teaching music full time. This is my eighth year of teaching full time, and almost my fifteenth year of teaching private voice and piano lessons!
