Harmony Preschool Recital Information

Harmony Preschool Recital Information – December 2017

Parents, grandparents, friends and family are all welcome to come to the recital to see our musicians perform on stage. The Preschool and Young Musicians class will perform without their parents on stage. Please stay for the duration of the entire recital, we will have performances from both classes. Details of the ECE recital are as follows:

Who: Harmony Preschool Students
What: December Celebration
When: Saturday, December 2nd at 9:45am (please sign-up online starting November 1st, sign-up instructions will be emailed to you in our monthly newsletter)
Where: The Village (former Rocky Mountain College), 4039 Brentwood Road NW, in the Chapel
Why: To celebrate the music the children have been learning so far this year!
How: Please plan to arrive at least 10-15 minutes early for the recital as performances will happen first. Performances will not be held up for any late arrival. There is ample parking in the lot directly outside the front door of the school. Upon arrival, please check in with the administrative staff (at the desk) as you enter the facility. They will mark your child’s name off so we know you have arrived. Once you have signed in, wait for the previous Recital to finish then make your way into the Chapel. You are welcome to sit wherever there is an available seat. There is no food allowed at the Recital or in the Chapel.

If your child would like to attend the student instrument recitals, you are more than welcome to attend them as they are being held on the same weekend as the ECE recital and at the same venue. The student recitals are a formal event so audience members (including ECE students) are expected to follow proper recital etiquette. See the link for the “Recital Information for Instrument Lessons” on our website for details on recital etiquette. This also lists the times of the student recitals.

Parents will be asked to remain in their seats throughout the Recital and not block the aisles for the duration of the performances.  Designated photo areas will be provided for parents.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or speak with your classroom teacher.

Hickety Pickety

Hickey pickety my black hen

She lays eggs for gentleman

Gentleman come every day

To see what my black hen doth lay


Grand Old Duke of York

Oh, the grand old Duke of York,

He had ten thousand men;

He marched them up to the top of the hill,

And he marched them down again.


Now when they were up, they were up,

And when they were down, they were down,

And when they were only half-way up,

They were neither up nor down.


One, Two Tie My Shoe

One, two,

Tie my shoe;

Three, four,

Shut the door;

Five, six,

Pick up sticks;

Seven, eight,

Lay them straight:

Nine, ten,

A big fat hen.



Up on the housetop reindeer pause,

Out jumps Good Old Santa Clause

Down through the chimney with lots of toys

All for little girls and boys


Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn’t go?

Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn’t go?

Up on the housetop, click, click, click

Down through the chimney with old Saint Nick
