According to the website of North Shore, they are “a dynamic educational community composed of five schools located within the strongest public systems in the nation. The Performing Arts Department includes more than 400 students and has a legacy of excellence in the area of Band, Choir and Orchestral Music. In addition to constantly receive Golden ratings at State festivals, their stage works have been presented in Austria, Argentina, Canada, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Slovenia and Uruguay.”
The fact that its Chamber Choir has performed on two bastions of U.S. culture, the Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, guarantees the quality of the Long Island.based youth group.
Michael Kershner, director of this choir, said that the trip to the island “is one of those great opportunities that only come around once in a lifetime”. David Soto, director of the Orchestra of Metals, said he was “fascinated” by this artistic journey.
