Chorale To Perform At The White House

Glen Cove High School Choral Director Edward Norris announced that the Glen Cove High School Select Chorale has been chosen to perform at the White House on Friday, Dec. 13. The group will be singing a five-hour set before many national dignitaries, including U.S. Senators, members of the House of Representatives and quite possibly the President. 

 

Additionally, the group will carol throughout Washington D.C., making stops at the National Christmas Tree as well as the Vietnam, Martin Luther King Jr. and Lincoln memorials and possibly the Capitol Building. 

 

According to Mr. Norris, hundreds of groups from throughout the United States apply to play the White House every year and it is a tremendous honor to be chosen. The GCHS Select Chorale is the only group from the area to perform there this year and is among a handful of choirs comprising approximately 50 acts from across the country, including string quartets, harpists, and soloists.  

 

Under the direction of Mr. Norris, the GCHS Select Choir has performed at many prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, LeFrak Concert Hall (Queens College), the United Nations Building, Citi Field and Shea Stadium. Last year they were one of only 10 choirs in the region invited to participate in the Westminster Choir College Invitational Choral Festival. The group has also traveled to festivals in Florida, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. 

 

Norris thanks Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi and Congressman Steve Israel for helping to make this trip a reality.  

 

The booster association for the music department, MPAPA, is a non-profit organization, founded by a group of parents and alumni. Their efforts are spent on fundraising for year-end scholarships and offsetting pricing for trips, performances and various competitions.  As this is an expensive trip for many of the students, they are asking for support from community members.  If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to support this once in a lifetime opportunity, please send your donation by Dec. 9 to:  Glen Cove High School, ATTN:  MPAPA, Dosoris Lane, Glen Cove, NY 11542.

News

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families. 

 

This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar. 

 

I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
