The Victoria school district Fifth-Grade Honor Choir will sing at the Victoria Fine Arts Center at 7 p.m. Thursday.

The concert is free and open to the public.

Students representing 17 schools are going to sing the program, Music from Around The World.

This year's theme was to help expose children to different cultures, said Conductor John Woods.

"Music is not just kids or Americans; it connects us to the world," he said.

Director of Fine Arts Jay Lester said interest in the program is growing. The number of students involved has doubled.

"The kids come in excited and talkative," Lester said.

The director also said the program can help to draw students to choral music.

Woods, who is also the pastor of music and worship at Northside Baptist Church, said it has been a pleasure working with the children.

In this process, participants have learned more about teamwork, following instructions and other life skills. The conductor additionally expressed appreciation for others who help to foster the children's talent.

"It's clear that their music teachers are committed to excellence and have deeply inspired the kids," he said.
