Pennsylvannia Ave School – Atlantic City, NJ – Instrumental Music Concert

leave a comment »

AC PRESS PUBLISHEDI’ve had the opportunity to be a sub-teacher this year! What a great experience and very thankful for the relationships I’ve developed with the students and teachers in this setting. Yesterday, our school was treated to live music and songs performed by Sovereign Instrumental Music Academy and Pennsylvania Ave School students. Lead by Choral Director, John Howard, and Orchestral Director, David Murray, the students put on a good show. Seeing these young musicians took me back 15 years ago, when I was in their place playing Bach, Mozart and some of these same classic show tunes! Fortunately, I had my camera so I decided to take photos during warm-up and the morning.

Enjoy 🙂
