Sayville Elementary Music Presents "The Nutcracker"

  • Hi Everyone!

    We would like to share a labor of love with you that we are so proud of!  We have teamed up in elementary music to put on a "holiday" performance to share with our community since we cannot have any concerts this year.

    Every grade level K-5 has had a music selection to study from the Nutcracker, by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, in their curriculum.  They have all studied musical concepts like beat, rhythm, melody, form, and instrumentation to a familiar portion of the entire work.  We have made some COVID modifications to each lesson and decided to film each performance.  We even had a few of the remote students volunteer to perform!  The story and selections have been placed in the same order as George Balanchine's production with the New York City Ballet.  We really hope you check out all of the links below and enjoy our "concert" performance of The Nutcracker!

    Wishing you all a HEALTHY and HAPPY holiday!
