The Boardman library invited the community to attend its opening night kickoff event for its 10th annual Celebrate the Arts March 21. The event, which featured the musical interludes of the St. Charles Children’s Choir, was the debut of a display of artwork by Boardman-area students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.

The choir, under the direction of Laura Kotheimer, began its performance with “Music Has Brought Us Together.”

“We would like to start our program tonight with a song about what has brought us together tonight — music,” said Kotheimer.

The students then sang “We are Children of our God” and then shook it up a bit with “Rockin Robin.”

“I thought about singing “Let it Snow,” but then thought, no, I don’t want to call for anymore snow. Maybe this song means spring is right around the corner,” said Kotheimer.

The next song in the choir’s repertoire was “Look at the World.”

“This song tells us to look at the world in a very special way. It is a very beautiful song. Our good musical ears help us with this song and the key changes that are in it,” said Kotheimer.

To end their performance, three eighth-grade students performed a special part of “God Bless America,” after which the audience was asked to join the choir in singing the song.

The Boardman library provided punch and cookies for attendees and held a children’s drawing and adult drawing for a special library prize.
