The Lower Hudson Valley Youth Chorus will be performing a benefit concert at Nyack High School on Sunday, June 12 at 6p. The Youth Chorus, directed by Jared Rosenblum, has been performing locally and in NYC since 2007. Recent performances include the Gift of Sharing at Lord & Taylor in NYC, Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway, two performances at Radio City Music Hall opening for the Christmas Spectacular, a performance at Madison Square Garden before a Harlem Globetrotters game, and most recently a performance at a NY Knicks game.
The chorus also loves to support local charities and has recently performed at the Autism Speaks Walk, and a fundraiser to raise money for Japan, singing with Dream Theater’s Jordan Rudess.
The student performers, from Rockland, Westchester and Bergen Counties, range in age from 6-17 years old. The group began just four years ago, aiming to meet the needs and interests of students wanting to sing together ‘€“ with a Glee-like inspiration. Jared Rosenblum, choral teacher at Nyack Middle School, offers scholarships for students so that all who are interested can participate.
Proceeds from the upcoming performance will go to Arts Angels, the non-profit arts organization that supports the fine art, drama, and music activities of students in the Nyack schools. Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door. Performance will be from 6-7pm at Nyack High School, 360 Christian Herald Road, Nyack, NY.
