“I wanted to thank you all for sponsoring our 2013 trip to Lincoln Center for the Music History/Theory and Music Technology students, as well as the first trip ever for our Concert Choir students to visit Broadway this year! ArtsAlive! is a true partner in every sense of the word, by supporting and sponsoring these exceptional artistic opportunities for our students year after year.
This year, 60 students traveled to NYC to visit Lincoln Center and all it has to offer. Students participated in a backstage tour, heard the NY Philharmonic in concert, and attended an evening performance featuring Branford Marsalis at Jazz at Lincoln Center. It was a fun-filled day celebrating our love of music! In addition, our Concert Choir had the opportunity to participate in a workshop with Broadway actress, Lindsay Northen, as well as attend a matinee performance of Wicked the Musical! This opportunity was truly, “once in a lifetime,” for 46 absolutely captivated students!
Thank you ArtsAlive! for supporting these amazing opportunities; the students and I greatly appreciate it!!! “
