Our School is the proud recipient of VH1 "Save the Music" 2016 Band Grant and 2018 Keyboard Grant. These grants have been vital to our music programming. We proudly showcase student achievement on November 12, 2019 at Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School ( WHEELs). Ms Tomic, music director, along with students, performed "Lost Boy" by Ruth B and "Clocks" by Coldplay. Before going on to play, Akera P. shared how important was in her life for self-expression.
Tomic shared " In the last three years, hundreds of students have had the opportunity to play quality musical instruments. The music Program has become highly desirable in the school with many more new students each year. Students are going to college with majors and minors in a music field."
If you missed this event, you will have another chance to see our band at our next event, Spring Concerto in May 2020.
