Curry Second-Grader Performs as “Little Drummer Boy” at ASU Concert

Post Date:12/13/2017

IMG_0922We love to hear about the amazing things happening at our schools! Susan Dickens, music teacher at Curry Elementary, shared this story about one of her students who recently highlighted his musical talents at an ASU event.

“I am in the ASU Gospel Choir and when our director, Dr. Jason Thompson, mentioned he wanted to have a little drummer boy perform at our winter concert, one of my second-grade students immediately came to mind. Yogi Hamilton performed with ASU Gospel Choir as part of the Festival of Choirs at ASU Evelyn Smith Theater as the little drummer boy. Yogi was featured playing snare drum on Thursday, November 30 and Friday, December 1. I was, of course, very proud! He did a great job!”
