It’s a double dose of music from just some of our school district’s talented musicians!
Students from Isaac E. Young Middle School chorus, band, and orchestra classes have collaborated to spread holiday cheer through music. This annual event traditionally has been for the Isaac Young community, but this year the school is spreading its holiday joy with the larger community virtually. Please enjoy 14 holiday classics featuring over 200 sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders. The entire student body watched the video (see image) on Thursday morning, and you can witness their talents, spirit, and teamwork here.
In addition, Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting included two selections by the New Rochelle High School Jazz Band, under the direction of Director Chris Stelluti. The band provided renditions of “Fly Me to the Moon,” featuring the vocals of senior and PAVE member Emily Pajarito, and “Jumpin' at the Woodside”. View the performances here and here.
Band members participating were Charlie Bases; Luke Cinquemani; Xavier Dennis; Victor Garcia-Gallet; Seth Harary; Vittoria Lazzarini; Nathaniel Michael Morris; Andreas Philip Mulder; Charlie Nocar; Leah Josefina Shefferman; Jasper Todd; Imaad Hadi Uzun; and Gianluca Veronesi.
New Rochelle High School Dr. Dagoberto Artiles, in introducing the Jazz Band, noted that the band had been together only three weeks, but came together quickly during planning and rehearsals to ensure an enjoyable performance. The Board meeting was recorded and will be posted on the Board of Education page at nred.org soon.
