On Wednesday, May 22, the GCSD is proud to host the annual spring music festival. This year, the festival will feature the students of the Guilderland Choral Program in a combined concert performance with students from grades 5–12. This will be the culmination of a three day residency with Dr. José Daniel Flores-Caraballo, Choral Director (SUNY Albany, Albany Pro Musica).
Dr. Flores-Caraballo will be conducting clinics and workshops with students and teachers in the vocal ensembles at Farnsworth Middle School and Guilderland High School and fifth-graders across the district. The residency will culminate with a combined performance with Dr. Flores-Caraballo and Guilderland vocal teachers conducting the selections.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. in the High School West Gym. This entire residency is underwritten by the Guilderland Music Parents and Friends Association [a not-for-profit 501(c)(3)]. Donations and sponsorships are welcome. We look forward to this inspiring musical experience! The concert is free and open to the public.
