Norristown Area School District Welcomes Spring with Inaugural Choral Festival
On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, roughly 600 students from Cole Manor Elementary School, East Norriton Middle School, Eisenhower Science and Technology Leadership Academy, Gotwals Elementary School, Hancock Elementary School, Marshall Street Elementary School, Paul V. Fly Elementary School, Norristown Area High School, Stewart Middle School, and Whitehall Elementary School gathered to use music as a symbol of unison.
“Seeing as March is ‘Music in Our Schools Month,’ this seemed like the perfect time to bring our vocal musicians together. The NASD choir students were able to bring our community closer through sharing music with each other.” said Lynne Danoff, Choir Director at Norristown Area School.
The choral festival proved to be a unifying factor. Johnny Trujillo, Music Teacher at East Norriton Middle School highlighted, “it will undoubtedly be an unforgettable memory for all of the students! This festival was also an invaluable way to build the camaraderie and sense of community for all our students and staff.”
