Full Group Music in the ParksMusic in the Parks Festival

The Eastchester School District Music Department had a tremendously successful day of competition at the annual Six Flags Music in the Parks festival at the end of April.

The hard work of the students and their teachers paid off with wonderful results:

Orchestra: 1st place AA superior rating AND best overall performance in all categories;

Advisor:  Katelyn Odierna

Band: 1st place/AA excellent rating; Advisor:  Mark Dodge

Chorus: 1st place/AA excellent rating; Advisor:  Jeremy Messmer

 

Music in the Parks is a festival for bands, orchestras and choirs, grades 6-12. Experienced instrumental and vocal teachers will offer suggestions on how to improve students’ performance. Bringing home a trophy is akin to winning a sports tournament and can increase awareness of the music program and its offerings for students.
