Westfield’s Roosevelt Intermediate School choral students performed with the New Jersey Festival Orchestra in the final movement to Gustav Holst’s “The Planets” in weekend concerts held in Westfield and in Basking Ridge on September 20 and 21.

Taught during the school year by vocal music instructors, Sabino Losco and Karen Romero, the students included:   Alison Brown, Meridith Case, Rachel Hammelburg, Brianna Hatch, Caitlin Haviland, Emma Herber, Sarah Laide, Abby Jarecki, Savannah Stewart, Lauren Triarsi and Stephanie Xiao. Three eighth grade teachers -- Stephanie Kwiatkowski, Liz Scheuerer and Daisy Lemos -- rounded out the sound and made connections with the students. The teachers and students were grateful for the invitation by New Jersey Festival Orchestra’s Music Director David Wroe, and agreed that it was a great weekend which always will be remembered.
