The Red Bandana Choral Symphony performed by the Nyack High School Chorus and Symphony Orchestra

The Red Bandana Choral Symphony is a 4-part symphony that tells the story of 9/11 through poetic verse and orchestral music. It brings together chorus, concert band, jazz band, and string orchestra in an intensive, dramatic and moving reflection of the events of the day that has forever changed our lives. Composed by Scott Nathan Louis in 2014, the score was commissioned by MusicWorks of Arts Angels, a non-profit parent and community organization that supports the arts in Nyack Public Schools. See attached Press Release for more detailed information about this compelling production. Press Release (Edited)

High School Student’s Mentor Program

Students from the High School Instrumental Music Ensembles have been volunteering their time on Tuesday’s (Strings) and Thursday’s (Band) to help assist our Middle School Staff with their advanced after school music ensembles. The High School Student presence has boosted attendance and the excitement of the program and we are so glad that our Middle School students have the opportunity to play alongside our talented High School students. Our Advanced Middle School Ensembles are led by Ms. Ann Winze (Strings), Ms. Kristen Johnsen (Strings), and Mr. Michael Humphrey (Band).
