Not Throwing Away Their Shot

Students of the fine and performing arts department from the Lindenhurst High School were recently provided with a wonderful opportunity to further develop their skills with the help of professionals in their field.            

More than 100 students spent the day in New York City taking part in a Broadway Classroom workshop led by performers from the Broadway hit musical Hamilton. During the workshop sessions students learned some of the choreography to “My Shot,” one of the shows more popular songs. When the training ended, dance captains David Guzman and Voltaire Wade-Greene and cast ensemble member Rickey Tripp shared with the students their experiences in the theater and answered the student questions.                

The day ended with students visiting the Broadway Theater watching a performance of Broadway's Miss Saigon.

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.”

Earlier in the month, with the help and support of the surrounding community, the Lindenhurst High School Peer Leadership group collected more than $7,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. The group coordinated the head-shaving event in an effort to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. Among the participants were students, community members and members of the teaching faculty including math teacher Megan Scharf who was personally responsible for $4,000 of that amount in donations.
