NEW YORK, NY - On Friday, April 29, the Deerfield Select Chorus, from the Mountainside School District, performed the National Anthem at a NY Mets game under the direction of Deerfield music teacher, Jared Rosenblum.
This is the third year that the chorus has performed at CitiField. The staff from the Mets commented that they were “blown away” by the sound of the chorus and couldn't believe that such young students could produce such a beautiful sound. The crowd at the game cheered loudly when the anthem was over.
This is only one of the many performance opportunities that the Deerfield Select Choir provides the students. This year the chorus has performed at the United Nations, Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.
Students in grades 5-8 are able to join the Select Choir by audition.
