Salida’s Longfellow Elementary School fourth-grade choir presented their underwater extravaganza, “Go Fish,” Thursday evening.

Portraying a variety of sea creatures, the choir presented a story about a tiger shark, Nieve Naccarato, who, unlike the other sharks, wants friends.

She falls in with a group of other “unique” fish and realizes they all have their uniqueness in common – from the out-of-tune tuna, Elliana Veltri, to the spotted zebra fish, Maddie Bowers.

Group numbers by the clown fish, sharks, sea horses and snappers were entertaining and showcased some fun dancing.

Hudson Blondeau performed a piano solo, “Carousel Capers.”

The choir was under the direction of Longfellow music teacher Jennifer Giangiulio. The musical play was by John Jacobson and John Higgins.

Members of the fourth-grade choir include: Blake Bennett, Dakota Binkley, Hudson Blondeau. Dakota Boggs, Maddie Bowers, Vivian Brown, Briggs Buchanan, Ashley Castillo-Flores, Sophia Chou-Messa, Owen Cozart;
