Angelic voices filled the air at the 23rd annual Fourth Grade Songfest, celebrating music, unity and our Catholic faith.
Fourth graders from many of the Catholic schools around the Diocese of Grand Rapids gathered to perform at West Catholic High School on March 7. They sang folk songs, hymns, and other music, representing a variety of cultures.
Songfest is a highlight of students’ fourth grade experience in our Catholic schools. They practice their songs throughout the year, and they correspond with fourth graders from other schools as pen pals. On the day of the concert, they take a field trip to West Catholic and rehearse together ahead of the evening performance. The concert always delights parents, grandparents and loved ones.
Songfest is just one of many opportunities for Catholic school students to develop their creativity. Learn more about the dynamic programs we offer by contacting us.
