Music Awards play on virtually

Story by Christopher Caraballo, Staff Writer

As we reach the end of this special school year, the annual banquets that students usually attend in person will start to be streamed and presented virtually. The chorus music awards night was no exception to this, as both Mr. Stanley and Mrs. Gottleib sent out the honors via a word document. While it isn’t quite the same, it was great seeing all of the fantastic students recognized for their achievements. The following is the complete list of participants from the music department for the 2019-2020 school year:
