The State Large Group Music Contest will be held Friday, May 6 at Ft. Madison High School. Under the auspices of the Iowa High School Music Association, the contest is held at several performance centers around the state on May 6 and May 7. Choirs and bands will be performing two to three pieces of music for a panel of three judges who will assign each group a rating of I (Superior), II (Excellent), or III (Good). Adjudicators will be giving written and audio criticism along with the final rating, which is designed as feedback for groups on ways they can improve their performances. Fairfield High School will be sending approximately 220 students in five different groups to compete: 9-12 Women's Choir, 9-12 Men's Choir, Chamber Choir, Freshman Band and 10-12 Concert Band.

Spring has sprung! It's time for flowers, birds and singing! The Pence second, third and fourth graders have been hard at work on their spring program entitled "Children of the World". This will be held Tuesday, May 24th at 7:00 pm at the Fairfield High School Auditorium. Each grade level will be singing folk songs from various countries around the world. Some of the featured countries are Wales, Italy, Mexico, Japan and the USA. Interspersed with the folk songs will be "fun facts" about that country read by the students. Come and join us for an evening with an international flavor. To quote the title song - "We're all children of the world, and we carry the future with us!"
