The district is excited to announce that Nicholas Stebner, an eighth-grader at the Junior-Senior High School, was accepted into the American Choral Director's Association National Middle School - JR High Honor Choir.
Stebner prepared music in advance and submitted an audition tape in the early fall, along with hundreds of other students from around the country. This is the first time that East Rockaway has had a choral student selected for a national choir.
ACDA is a national organization for choral directors. The Honor Choir is a part of their 60th anniversary Jubilee National Conference and will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, from Feb. 27-March 2, 2019.
