HS choir students visit NYC

Posted on May 1, 2017, in Performing Arts

General McLane High School choir students visited New York City last week and kept quite busy with a variety of educational learning opportunities.

Students visited a series of sites, including: Battery Park, the 911 Memorial Museum, Times Square, Highline and Old City Hall.  They also enjoyed Broadway shows such as: The Great Comet of 1812, Waitress, Wicked, Miss Saigon and Sunset Boulevard.

Students also had the opportunity to sing themselves in “GM Sings Broadway ” at Laurie Beechman Theatre with NYC performers. Their host was Cory Mach.

Students met up with GM graduates Andrew Swackhamer (’07) and Devon Yates (’06). Swackhamer lives in NY and makes and sells ukuleles. Yates is a performer on Broadway.

Students learned original Broadway choreography to Something Rotten’s “Welcome to the Renaissance” by Broadway performer and choreographer, Eric Sciotto. Sciotto is an Erie native.

A good time was had by all!
