BRMS chorus students share virtual concert
Blue Ridge Middle School eighth grade chorus students shared their talent and joy with Purcellville’s nursing home residents this holiday season.
Chorus 8 worked on a project this quarter in which they created their own audio/visual concert with recordings of themselves singing. The BRMS PTO President, Danielle Kabban, coordinated with Grace Guiney, the chorus teacher, to turn these projects into a joyful gift of holiday music for senior homes in the community.
Kabban said, “I’m delighted that our BRMS students can offer some holiday cheer through some lonely times.” Guiney added, “I am so proud of the hard work my students put in on this project. While we were all disappointed about missing our usual winter performances, this has been a very special project we wouldn’t usually have time for. In choir class, I rarely have the opportunity to hear my students sing alone; I am grateful for the opportunity for my students to shine as individuals in these projects.”
Brion Bell, principal of Blue Ridge Middle, commented, “If we can share our musically talented singers with the community to help assuage the stress of this time in any small way, I am glad we are doing it.”
This educational outreach activity is part of the larger Loudoun County Public Schools Project Learning initiative. Students address problems and questions with solutions that integrate the Virginia Standards of Learning.
