Evergreen Elementary Eagle Choir
Director, Mrs. Angela Mazur.
The Evergreen Elementary Eagle Choir, under the direction of Mrs. Angela Mazur, is a small group of third and fourth grade students from Evergreen Elementary School in Sedro-Woolley. This new group, part of the larger school choir, has been meeting weekly to prepare for this concert. The students are excited to perform here at McIntyre Hall with the Skagit Valley Chorale, and proud to represent the Sedro-Woolley School District.
Mrs. Mazur moved to Bellingham last summer from Anchorage, Alaska. In Alaska, she worked over a decade as an English teacher, musical theatre vocal director, and an elementary music teacher. She is honored to start a new music program for Evergreen Elementary, and to share her passion of the arts with stories and experiences. Some of her most gratifying involvement with the arts include playing the piccolo in the West Virginia University Marching Band, singing with an International Choir in Austria, participating in the FRINGE Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland and performing as a cast member in Walt Disney World. She is hopeful her love of music and the arts will continue to provide opportunities for her students at Evergreen Elementary.
