Congratulations to the Ocean Avenue 4th and 5th Grade Choruses who performed “When I Close My Eyes” by Jim Papoulis under the direction of Mr. Nicholas Hart and Ms. Erica Nottingham at their spring concert at NMS. This was an exciting new opportunity for the students to sing together in a combined chorus of almost 120 singers, as they traditionally rehearse and perform separately. The lyrics convey a powerful message of self-worth and self-acceptance, which is important for all children. Before the performance, Ms. Nottingham addressed the audience and students.

“May you always listen to that voice in your heart. May you always live your truth,” Ms. Nottingham encouraged them. “Your truth knows right from wrong, good from bad, and will lead you to happiness. This is our greatest wish for you.”
