NYC Trip Day 3

Today’s activities began with fantastic Band, Choir, Color Guard, and Orchestra workshops at Broadway Classroom in Manhattan. Students got to rehearse with Broadway directors, musicians, and actors who also shared stories about musical life in NYC and gave advice on being a professional musician. After the workshops, we spent the time exploring the area in and around Times Square. We then had a wonderful dinner at the Crossroads Restaurant at the beautiful Marriott Marquis and then saw the hilarious and amazing musical Something Rotten.

 

NYC Trip Day 2

After a long bus ride, we arrived at Penn State University early Tuesday morning to have band, choir & orchestra clinics with their esteemed faculty. It was a very productive and worthwhile experience in preparation for Thursday’s big concert. Following lunch, we made our way to NYC and got to experience the city at the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center). We had some amazing views of Central Park and Manhattan. Check out some of the pics below:

The Journey Begins – NYC Trip Day 1

Students began arriving as early as 10:30 a.m. for band, choir, and orchestra rehearsals. Suitcases, bags, cases, etc. littered the halls and music classrooms in anticipation. At 3:30 p.m., the music department presented their Farewell Concert in the gym which featured music that will be performed at Carnegie Hall. Following the concert, we loaded the buses and were off!
