Music Fills the Streets in Maxwell

Music filled the main street of Maxwell last Wednesday, as the Maxwell Music Department presented its annual Music on Main event.

Nearly 250 spectators and participants listened to the sound of the Maxwell fifth grade and Jr. High bands, along with the sweet voices of the elementary students from kindergarten to fourth grade.

“Music on Main has been around 20 plus years,” said Maxwell High School counselor, Dena Lausten. It’s a great opportunity for kids to enjoy the last weeks of school while showing their parents what they have learned in music class.”

The show opened with Mrs. Gomes’ kindergarten class, dressed as animals, singing “Old McDonald Had A Farm.”

“I like singing in front of everyone and Mrs. Wilson makes it fun,” said Kindergartener Khloey Santiago.

Wilson started the event and has been in charge for the past two decades.

“Music on Main is one of my favorite music events,” Wilson said. “It is so much fun to see parents, teachers and community members enjoying our outdoor event. The support that the kids and I feel is inspiring.”

Along with the sounds of music, the music boosters raised money by selling baked goods and drinks during the event, which were donated by community members. Cupcakes, brownies, gluten free items, and other yummy treats were sold in single serving portions. Proceeds help with the cost of instruments and costumes.

“We are very fortunate to have such a talented music teacher. She does a great job,” said Lausten.■
