East Rockaway students Gabriella Baccari (soprano), Sofia Bertolotti (alto), Emma Pollackov (alto), Matthew Pollackov (tenor) and Sofia Valdebenito (alto) performed with the New York American Choral Director's Association Middle School Honor Choir on Aug. 13. 

The students traveled to Albany, New York to work with esteemed guest conductor and composer Dr. Andrea Ramsey of the University of Colorado Boulder. After two days of intensive rehearsals, they gave a successful performance of challenging music to the delight of the audience. 

The Honor Choir is a select group that consists of seventh- and eighth-grade choral students from across the state who were nominated and accepted based on their fine musicianship and overall singing skills. 

The music department is very proud of these students and would like to congratulate them on representing East Rockaway at this statewide event!
