PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- It's not every day high school students get to be the opening act for an iconic band, but the City Singers at Peekskill High School are getting that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The group will open for the Grammy Award-winning Manhattan Transfer on Friday, May 12 with an homage to the group.
The event is a collaboration between Paramount Hudson Valley and Paramount Hudson Valley Arts, the resident non-profit. Paramount Hudson Valley Arts is organized exclusively to provide arts and education opportunities to communities in the Hudson Valley.
“My passion as an artist is to provide my students with the most realistic, professional, musical setting as possible, as this will alter their personal and professional lives forever regardless of their life’s ambition," said Latin Grammy nominee and Concert Guitarist, Larry Del Casale, the group's choral director.
"Along with their stunning vocal timbre and rhythmic precision, the group's vocal range spans from low bass to high soprano 1, covering all sectors of the vocals spectrum."
