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!!!
