St. James Academy students and their families recently attended the third annual Rock the School Concert in the St. James Parish Hall. Groups of St. James fourth- through eighth-grade musicians worked individually with their private teachers to prepare a show of rock and pop songs. The students who participated in the show auditioned and were coached by St. James music teacher Anne Marie Oldham. They performed alongside St. James classical pianists. The St. James Church youth Spirit and Inspire Choirs also performed. The show ended with an audience participation dance piece that all St. James Academy students had learned in music class.
