Do you hear the people sing? Madame Richter’s French 5 Honors class journeyed into Manhattan to see a performance of Les Misérables at the Imperial Theater. The students thoroughly enjoyed the performance and had a wonderful afternoon en ville! This trip is used as a springboard to continue the study of French history.
The Sayville HS Mathletes competed in their first competition this week. The team was led by top overall scorer Matthew Tomko with a score of 3. Congratulations to the whole team on their strong showing and good luck the rest of the season.
On October 19th, Sayville High School Junior Nick Burkel made his Carnegie Hall solo debut with the New York Concerti-Sinfoietta Orchestra.
Over the summer, Nick performed in a concerto competition sponsored by this orchestra and won a First Place Award which included a scholarship and a performance with the orchestra in Carnegie Hall.
Nick’s performance of the First Movement of the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto No. 1 was absolutelybeautiful, earning him a tremendous ovation from the audience.
Reviews of the performance were equally outstanding. The Epoch Times wrote:
“Burkel's performance was distinguished by incendiary temperament, well-articulated bowings... His exuberant approach, with double stops blessedly in tune, evidenced a thorough command of his instrument.”
We are so proud of Nick's achievements and are looking forward to hearing more from this extremely talented young man!
