A Night Of Music At Jericho Middle School


The Jericho Middle School and High School Chorus recently hosted a night of music joy. The sixth-grade chorus led by Clare Hussey sang, “This is Me,” “Fireflies,” and an arrangement of Disney favorites by Ron Verderber and Alan Billingsley.

The seventh-grade Chorus, sang “See You Again” with solos by Miriam Sheikh, Emilia Cortale and Joan Bao, as well as a choral medley entitled “Four Chords.”
The eighth-grade chorus soloist Natalie Palmer led the chorus in “Fight Song,” and closed with a mix of Stevie Wonder songs of the 60s.

The high school male chorus sang a beautiful rendition of “Hallelujah.” The full high school chorus joined in with the song “Sing.” Soloists Jackly Yeh, Seonngjee Park and Alex Dash sang “Finding Neverland” along with the high school chorus. The closing number was “You Can’t stop the Beat” with soloist Sabrina Benayoun.

Verderber thanked piano accompanist Shannon Gillespie for her help in the various numbers. Ken Pollitt, the curriculum associate, for performing and fine arts thanked those in attendance for their food donations, as that this was a “Rock CAN roll” event and in lieu of tickets, we collect non perishable food for the local food kitchen.
