Newark Valley Community Concert for Scholarships
October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
On October 20th some of the most talented alumni from the Newark Valley Central School district will be presenting a Community Concert. This free concert celebrates the accomplishments of past NVHS graduates while accepting donations to be put towards Scholarships for the next generation of NVHS seniors. Distinguished alumni from far and near will be traveling to perform in the concert.
This year Mrs. Brenna McLaud-Bichara, award winning dancer and choreographer from Vancover, BC is returning to her hometown to perform. Mr. Zachary Lenox of the Portland, OR Opera company will regale the audience with his broad and resonant baritone. Glorious local soprano Ms. Jenny Gac will mesmerize the audience with her lilting tones. The concert will also include a choir of alumni voices led by Newark Valley’s beloved director Jewel Griffith. The choir will perform selections to honor our First Responders and our Veterans, two groups that deserve our eternal gratitude.
From the bluegrass sounds of Tracy Steinkamp-Cucci, the guitar/voice duo of Julie Thompson and Todd Rutan, the harmonic tones of the Valley Harmony barbershop quartet and so many more gifted artists, there will be something for everyone. The concert will be held at the Newark Valley High School Jewel Bittner-Griffith auditorium on Saturday October 20th at 7pm. Free will offering is encouraged. All are welcome!
