  • Chamisa third and fourth graders performed the annual musical revue, focusing on Los Alamos history, before a packed audience March 15.
    Beginning with the first inhabitants, the ancient pueblo people, the program progressed forward in time featuring the conquistadores, the Hispanic settlers, the Santa Fe Trail and the Ranch School Boys.  
    Gen. Leslie Groves and J. Robert Oppenheimer took the stage with solos, as the workers, wives, children and the soldiers from the World War II era sang about their place on the Hill.
    Oppy and Groves sang about knowing “The World Would Never Be the Same Again.”  
    The musical ended with the workers of today’s Hill, celebrating the discoveries, technologies and missions of present-day.
