About 150 students at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School sang the "Spongebob Squarepants" theme song in near-perfect harmony on Tuesday morning. 

But they weren't watching cartoons. 

They were learning the elements of music as taught by the Hot Club of Saratoga, a gypsy jazz/swing ensemble. 
 Hot Club performed for fourth- and fifth-grade students at the school as part of the Saratoga Performing Art Center’s Classical Kids program. Since 1993, Classical Kids has performed for over 8,000 students in the Capital Region through Union College sponsorship. This year, they’re reaching out to more schools in Schenectady and Albany to expose young students to music in a way they might not have seen before. Participating students can also gain a free SPAC lawn pass for every summer season until they graduate from high school.
