A group of talented young voices at Rowe Elementary School comes together once a week during recess, forming an extraordinary musical chorus led by dedicated music teacher Aidan Boardman. This group has not only become a source of joy for the students, but is now gearing up for a special performance: singing the national anthem at an upcoming Maine Mariners game, scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on March 5.
Every week, as the school bell rings for recess, students eagerly make their way to the music room where the musical magic happens. Mr. Boardman guides these budding singers through vocal exercises, harmonies, and the intricacies of musical notation.
The chorus is a mix of students from different grades, creating a harmonious blend of voices that reflects the diversity and unity within Rowe. The weekly rehearsals serve not only as a platform for musical exploration but also as a space where friendships are formed and creativity is nurtured.
Mr. Boardman not only teaches the technical aspects of singing but also instills values of teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. Under his guidance, the chorus has evolved into a tight-knit community of young musicians who support and uplift each other.
The pinnacle of this musical adventure is the upcoming performance at the Mariners’ game. The students will be able to showcase their talents in front of a larger audience and the event will not only highlight their exceptional musical abilities but also bring a sense of pride to Rowe. The experience of singing at the game is sure to leave a lasting impression on these young performers, fostering a love for music that extends beyond the school walls.
