ALBUQUERQUE – On April 6, 2019, over 500 people visited the Albuquerque Heights Seventh-day Adventist Church to see 84 students from five Texico Conference elementary schools perform the musical program, Amazing God. Led by music teacher Edna Becerra, the Festival Choir, comprised of fifth through eighth-grade classes. During the practice days before the program, students auditioned for solo parts. The Sandia View Academy Choir and ninth graders from El Paso Adventist Junior Academy (EPAJA) also joined the Festival Choir for the final song, “My Tribute.”
The program featured a ukulele number performed by students from the El Paso Adventist Junior Academy. The older students from the Adventist Academy of Santa Fe sang as the first through third-grade classes played their xylophones and Ms. Morataya accompanied the group on her guitar.
