Symphony

Fourth grade students at Sage Creek Elementary were fortunate to be able to attend a performance of the Utah Symphony on Monday, December 19th at Salem Hills High School.  All of the fourth grade students in the district are invited to see and hear the symphony perform each year and for some this is a once in a lifetime experience.  In preparation for this significant event the students have been learning about different musical instruments, composers, and types of music.  They all dressed in their very best  for this extra special occasion and had an experience they will never forget
