Music in the Parks

Malverne High School’s music department recently participated in the Music in the Parks event at Williamsburg, Va. Under the direction of Ken Zagare and Deanna Vitola, 22 students from the district’s select choir performed “Ain’t No Grave” and “Sing Me to Heaven.” With a “superior” rating of 91, the group placed first out of four choirs in its division from the East Coast and was the top mixed chorus out of eight groups across all divisions. The group received compliments from the judges on their collegiate sound and ability to perform at such a high level of expertise.
