The Lindenhurst department of fine and performing arts recently presented its annual All-Lindy Concert at the Lindenhurst High School auditorium.
To kick off the evening, teacher Andrew Kuftack directed the All-Lindy Jazz Band as they performed Cab Calloway and Irving Mills’ “Minnie the Moocher,” Al Dubin and Harry Warren’s “Forty Second Street” and “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” by Whitfield and Strong.
Paul Cronin then led the All-Lindy Orchestra, as they performed Frank M. Roger’s “Get Ready, Get Set, BOW,” Brian Balmages’ “Into the Sky” and “Busy as a Bee” by Joseph Compello.
The All-Lindy chorus, led by director Philip Ricciardi, serenaded the crowd with several entertaining selections including the popular “How Far I’ll Go,” written by Lin-Manuel Miranda for Disney’s Moana. The All-Lindy band, under the direction of Ray Melograne, took to the stage with performances of “Wipe Out” arranged by Michael Sweeney, “You Raise Me Up” arranged by Doug Adams and an original piece from the director himself, “The Noble Quest.”
