Rochester NY music school invited to perform at Hersheypark
50 students perform at the famed amusement park in Hershey PA, August 12.
A sweet opportunity
Over the past two years, Rochester Academy of Music & Arts has taken students to perform at both Carnegie Hall & the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. For 2018, the Academy wanted to present students with a brand new experience.
"One of the most popular aspects of our prior two trips was the sense of community they created. Students stayed in the same hotel, ate together, and performed together. This year, we wanted to give families even more opportunity to bond and have fun together," says Brigid Harrigan, director of Rochester Academy of Music & Arts.
"For this event, not only do students perform, they also get to explore the amusement and water parks together, and Hersheypark is setting up a private food venue just for us. It's amazing to see so many Rochester residents in another city, enjoying themselves. Knowing that we made that happen is extra sweet.
