Cynthia Hutchins, who teaches music for grades K-6 and middle school chorus, said the return has been good for everyone.
“When we got to get back together this week, there were lots of smiles, and we made lots of great music,” she said.
She noted the middle school band, led by Samantha Schreckengost, has also started rehearsing again.
Prior to this week, Hutchins had been working with students one on one or in pairs, which she said has not been ideal.
“Chorus isn’t just about singing in a group. It’s a social experience, too, for middle schoolers,” she said. Now, they are back together, rehearsing regularly in the cafeteria, where they can safely spread out.
