Students from St. Francis de Sales School kicked off the holiday season December 5th and 6th in a big way. The group had the opportunity to shine bright at the Festival of Lights in Downtown Riverside on Dec. 5 followed by a spectacular performance the next day at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park.
The group of 42 students ages 5-13 participate in an after-school music performance program. They showcased traditional holiday songs to capture the spirit of the season. This sensational music program is managed and directed by Tracy Simeon, who has an extensive background in musical performance, dance, and theater. Founded in 2014 the after-school music performance program provides St. Francis de Sales students the opportunity to study music theory, movement, stage production/equipment, and performance technique. The students are eager to begin rehearsals for the “The Big Show” a Broadway Review scheduled for May 21, 2016 at University Theatre on the campus of University of California, Riverside.
