Marcellus High School musicians take Manhattan

May 11, 2016 -- Congratulations to the student musicians who traveled to New York City in April to perform in the WorldStrides Heritage Music Festival in the famous Riverside Church on Manhattan’s upper west side, as well as those who performed in the Onondaga County Music Educators Association (OCMEA) All-County Jazz Festival.

According to high school instrumental music teacher Michael Cirmo, the Marcellus High School music department won several awards in New York City:
  • Concert Choir: Silver rating
  • Select Choir: Gold rating
  • Symphonic Band: Gold rating & first-place
  • Symphonic Band: Award for top scoring band at the festival
  • Symphonic Band: Adjudicators Award for highest overall score at the festival (97.7)
  • Chorus & Band - Sweepstakes Award for the highest scores combined for chorus and band at the festival
  • Both the band and chorus have been invited to the WorldStrides Heritage Festivals of Gold National Invitational.
“The kids did a fabulous job, and we saw some amazing things in New York City, including ‘The Lion King,’ Carnegie Hall and the New York Pops Orchestra, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, ‘Sounds of the City’ Guided Tour, St. John the Divine Cathedral and Times Square,” Mr. Cirmo said.

Closer to home, three Marcellus students participated in the OCMEA All-County Jazz Festival, which was hosted by Westhill High School: High school students Becky Martin (alto) and Nate Murphy (tenor), who performed with the Senior High Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and DMS student Ryan Lundrigan, who played piano with the Junior High Jazz Ensemble.

Students had to audition to be part of the group.

Congratulations to all our talented musicians and their teachers!
