Music in schools celebrated all month

ALBANY, N.Y. (March 1, 2017) -- The City School District of Albany will celebrate "Music in Our Schools Month" during March with a variety of student performances.

 

Events kick off March 8 with the All-City Band Concert at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School at 6:30 p.m.

 

Other upcoming performances include All-City Strings and All-City Chorus concerts, featuring outstanding musicians from throughout the district. And on March 11, the Albany Marching Falcons were scheduled to put on their collective Irish at two local St. Patrick's Day parades: the North Albany parade and the city's parade. However, the Marching Falcons did not participate this year due to the extreme cold and wind chill.

  

The All-City Strings Concert also was affected by the late-winter weather. The concert, originally scheduled for March 15 at William S. Hackett Middle School, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, April 4 at Hackett beginning at 6:30 p.m.

 

On March 18, the annual New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) festival will be held at Myers. Student performers from throughout the district will have their music skills evaluated at by a judge. Auditions will begin at 9 a.m.; school music teachers will let students know what time they are slated to perform.

 

The All-City Chorus Concert will be held March 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Myers. Also, the Albany High School Jazz Ensemble will perform at the annual Founders' Day reception on March 24.

 

The month wraps up with two schools performing on the Empire State Concourse. The select chorus, jazz band and stage band from Myers will perform at 12:35 p.m. on March 24, and the Hackett Middle School chorus will sing from noon-1 p.m. on March 27.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
