Great Neck South Middle School presenting concerts, art show

The Music Department and Art Department of Great Neck South Middle School are proud to present the Winter Concerts and Art Show on Tuesday, Dec. 12, and Wednesday, Dec. 13. Both concerts begin at 7:30 p.m., and will take place in the school’s auditorium, 349 Lakeville Rd.

The first concert, on Dec. 12, will feature Senior Orchestra, Chorus 7/8, and Senior Band. Classical selections from this night will include music by Schubert, Johann Strauss, and Handel. Popular works by The Chainsmokers and Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen will also be heard.

The second concert, on Dec. 13, will feature Orchestra 6, 6th-Grade Treble Chorus, and Band 6. Classical selections will include music by Tchaikovsky and Mozart. Popular works by The Beatles, Charlie Puth, and music from The Little Mermaid will also be performed.

Instrumental students are taught by Music Department Head Alan Schwartz and Mark Boschen. Choral students are taught by Shelley Willcox. Andrew DeNise is the music department teaching assistant.

Concerts are free and each lasts about an hour. Mr. Schwartz encourages all to attend, especially pre-K through grade 5 students, as “these concerts will introduce them to the music they may be performing in the future.”

Concertgoers can also enjoy the Winter Art Show, which will be on display in the school lobby during the week of Dec. 11. The exhibit includes a variety of drawings, paintings, and prints created by artists at South Middle. Art students are taught by Art Department Head Cynthia Smith, Karla Krupala, and Geoffrey Mead.
