The Board of Education adopted proposed changes to the K-12 music program guidelines at its public meeting on Wednesday evening that will allow music classes and ensembles for band and chorus to perform together in-person. The Board of Education supported new guidance for shortening the social distancing requirement from 12 feet to 6 feet as long as bell covers are used for all wind instruments, masks are worn by all students when singing, and there is at least 6 feet of distancing between students at all times.
The Howard L. Goff Middle School 7th Grade Band, 8th Grade Band and 8th Grade Jazz Band produced a virtual Spring Concert for the school community. Enjoy!
Every winter, the East Greenbush Music Department hosts a District-wide Instrumental Festival for elementary students in the Columbia auditorium. Unfortunately, schools are unable to hold large gatherings so this year’s concert has been transformed into a virtual experience. The Instrumental Festival video was produced using footage from past district-wide festivals and some from class this school year.
