Syosset’s Young Troubadours


BitterEnd_030216AIt’s a stage that has seen the likes of Harry Chapin, Bob Dylan, Etta James, Stevie Wonder and Carly Simon, just to name a few. And now students from Syosset’s iSchool of Music & Art can say they rocked out at one of New York City’s oldest and most well-known rock clubs.

BitterEnd_030216BLast month, the music students had he amazing opportunity to play The Bitter End in Greenwich Village, helming drums, keyboards, guitars, the violin and the microphone.

Not only did the young rockers learn about live performance, their parents also got the opportunity to relive the days when music’s greats played the famed city stage.
