Singing with Steve Green

main image

A couple of weekends ago some of our students had the honor of singing in a concert with Steve Green. Sunnyside SDA church hosted the event. 

Mr. Neely, PAES' Music Director shares, "Mr. Green planned to perform three songs from his new children's album and asked for a children's choir to join him. We accepted his invitation and provided a group of PAES singers from the 4th-8th grades. It was an amazing opportunity for these students to sing with a true musical star! Steve Green was friendly, funny and made the students feel special.  The evening's concert was glorious... it was an awe-inspiring experience that left everyone feeling they had witnessed something truly special." 

The PAES  Communications & Publishing class, a middle school elective, just so happens to include two students who participated in the concert. This gave the entire class an opportunity to polish their interview and journalism skills... the following report is from this class:
