The Alvey Singing Sunrays is an extracurricular choral group. All fourth and fifth grade students are eligible to join at the beginning of the fall and/or the spring semester.
Chorus practice is held each Tuesday morning from 7:15 am to 8:30 am. Parents drop off their children in the front of the school building, and Singing Sunrays members go to the cafeteria for practice.
Traditionally, the Singing Sunrays demonstrate their hard work at two concerts each year: a winter concert (often including holiday music), and a themed spring concert. Past spring themes have included a decade review, songs from Broadway musicals, Oscar-winning songs, Disney, and television theme songs.
The Singing Sunrays have been invited to perform at regional events, such as school board or community organization meetings. They were proud to perform at the National Dedication of the Pentagon Memorial, which was broadcast nationwide.
Chris Morris, Alvey music teacher, is the director of the Singing Sunrays. The following Alvey staff members are choral assistants: Anne Henry, Rachel Cochrane and Jennifer Fisher.
