Special to El Rrun-Rrun
At the end of every school year, the Hudson Elementary band and choir students put on a goodbye concert for parents and visitors at their school.
Music Director Alejandro Rivera said this year the concert was going to be different and gave the students discretion on what selections they would play. With four lead guitars, a drummer, percussionist and four piano players, this year's show also featured rap singers (in the middle with the baseball caps) belting out the tunes.
The students belted out "Count on Me" by Bruno Mars, "Roar" by Katy Perry, Feel This Moment" by Christina Aguilera, and the old standby "In the Summertime," by Mungo Jerry.
The first three songs and the rap performances were the students' ideas and they took to them like fish to water. The last selection is a reference to the coming summer vacations and the students invited their parents to join them in dancing to the tune. A few brave souls did as the rest of the visitors looked on.
For those students going ton to middle school (some to Oliveria) and others to private schools or to Los Fresnos, this was their last time to perform together and they took the opportunity to bond with their bods like the girls above. Director River and principal Loretta Dickson took time to thank the parents who attended for their support.
