Students in Raymond Wojcik's eighth grade Instrumental Music class at Edison Intermediate School will not only enjoy performing classical and traditional musical numbers during their concert on June 10, they also will entertain the audience with their own original composition. Named "Storm Scene," the music was developed following months of practice and working with their teacher, who is an accomplished composer.
Premiering the work on June 10 will be particularly exciting for the four students, Dan Savikas, Daniel Sanders, Chrissy Mosco, and Morgan Maloney, who were the main collaborators with their teacher. In addition to their original composition which is meant to convey a sense of waves, storm and gradual clearing and sunshine, the 40-member band will play the William Tell Overture and two other musical selections. There will also be selections played by the Edison Jazz Band.
The 7th and 8th grade instrumental concert, which is open to the public, will be held in Edison Intermediate School's auditorium located at 800 Rahway Avenue.
