by Nyack Musicworks

Fri Feb 15 is the last day for the general public to vote for Nyack High School’s Music Department in the national “Music Is Life.” One vote is permitted for each email address.

The Nyack High School’s Music Department has entered the National Educational Music Company’s Music is Life contest. This contest will be decided by public vote. The winner of the grand prize will receive $10,000 in musical instruments and a check for $1000 for the music program. If Nyack wins this contest, the prize will go toward the scholarship program, which, among other things like lessons, provides instruments to students whose families cannot buy or rent on their own.
