John F. Kennedy High
School Hosts “Night of A-Cappella” Performances
The Plainview-Old Bethpage School District
recently celebrated students’ musical talents by hosting its annual “Night of
A-Cappella” event at the John F. Kennedy High School.
The event featured performances by eight student-run a-cappella groups in front
of more than 1,000 friends, family, teachers and community members. The groups
that performed were: The Rolling Tones; Noteworthy; Under a Rest; B Sharps;
Drastic Measures; On a High Note; Chock Full of Notes and an all-boys group,
the Acafellas. The performances included original arrangements of popular songs
spanning several decades, along with each group’s traditional alumni songs. Each
group chose their own songs and choreographed their performances.
More than 100 student-musicians participate in the a-cappella program.
The event is part of the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District’s ongoing
effort to give students the opportunity to express themselves in creative ways
and use their imaginations to create something that makes them proud.
