I wanted to thank you all for sponsoring our 2016 trip to Lincoln Center on April, 29th. Nearly 55 students in Music History & Theory and Music Technology, traveled to NYC to visit Lincoln Center and all it has to offer. Students participated in a a backstage tour, heard the NY Philharmonic in concert featuring former John Jay Alumnus Carter Brey playing Schumann’s Cello Concerto, and attended an evening performance featuring the music of Louis Armstrong at B.B. Kings. Lead trumpet player Joey Morant, asked our students to join him onstage to play during the finale; Neal LaPolla, Jack Bandon, Tom Miritello, and Cooper Klares were more than happy to volunteer. It was supper exciting for all the students to see their peers debut at B. B. Kings! Overall, it was a fun-filled day celebrating our love of music!
ArtsAlive! is a true partner in every sense of the word, which is evidenced by your commitment to sponsor these exceptional artistic opportunities for our students year after year. Thank you so much for your continued support; the students and I greatly appreciate it!!!

To the Folks of ArtsAlive!
Thank you for supporting me in bringing more hands-on art and creative expression into my work day. Maggie’s work with the Wilderness students was successful and spilled over into all my 10th grade classes… and will continue to spill over into all my classes to come. This work has already touched hundreds of students.
These images show a taste of the work we did in Wilderness but please stop by the L202 classroom to see more. Thanks to all of you, my teaching is more balanced, profound and fulfilling. You are much appreciated.
