Garden City’s Waldorf School has announced that Andrew Fallu, Waldorf’s music and choral teacher – and his a capella singing group Satellite Lane – will perform and compete in the March 30 New York Regional competition of the Harmony Sweepstakes.
“Out of the 100+ groups that applied for the New York regional this year, only ten were chosen to compete,” said Fallu. “My friends and I in Satellite Lane are so proud to be one of them.”
Harmony Sweepstakes is a post-collegiate, semi-professional and professional a capella music festival and competition. For over a quarter century, the Harmony Sweepstakes has been delighting audiences and was the inspiration for the hit NBC show The Sing-Off. The winning group of each region receives an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles in order to compete in the national finals.

Tickets are $24 per person in advance (or $27 DOS) and can be purchased at www.millertheatre.com.
