The Much-Anticipated Beasley Lower School Annual Winter Program

The annual Beasley Lower School Winter Program drew its usual standing-room-only crowd of parents, grandparents, siblings and friends this afternoon in Mary Eliot Chapel. All Lower School students, Junior Kindergartners through 4th graders, performed songs representative of a variety of holidays and the winter season, with direction from Lower School music teachers Barb Spieler and Kathy Norvell. Students ended the program with a crowd favorite, « Peace The Whole World Over. » Each verse of the song used the word « peace » in a language spoken by one of our MICDS families. This year, it was sung in English, Chinese, German, Japanese, Vietnamese, Hebrew and more!

« The Beasley Winter Program celebrates holiday traditions and includes pieces for Diwali, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Vietnamese Moon Festival and an Arabic song of peace. I am so proud of the hard work and passion our young musicians put into their singing, dancing and instrument playing, » said Barb Spieler.
