EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – The Eastchester schools first music booster meeting Feb. 24 was a success, with more than 25 in attendance.
A decision was made to transform the spring jazz band concert into a jazz cafe experience by moving the venue from the high school auditorium to the middle school cafeteria. The boosters have been asked to transform the space, to create the mood for a jazz cafe through lighting, decor and refreshments. Anyone interested in helping prepare for the concert should contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
Congratulations to middle school sixth-grade students Kyoko Saito and Yuiko Nakamoto, who represented Eastchester in the Elementary All-County Orchestra. Saito was chosen as the concertmaster for the orchestra and had several solos at the concert.
Congratulations also go out to middle school sixth-grade trumpet player Stephen DeLotto for being selected to play in the Elementary All-County Band, and to seventh-grade percussionist Chris Tyrrell for making the Intermediate All-County Band.
The next general meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Eastchester Middle School cafeteria.
