The concert was part of the 2019 Car-Freshner/FX Caprara Honda of Watertown Concert Series presented by the Disabled Persons Action Organization. The group earned this opportunity after Choral Director Chris Lincoln sent in a demo tape featuring them singing the 1984 hit, “I Want to Know What Love Is”. The Achoired Pitches beat out many other schools for this honor including Canajoharie and Belleville-Henderson who finished second and third respectively. I was honored to chaperone the event along with Mr. Lincoln, Becca Violi, and Mike Violi. It was great fun and a night that our students will remember for the rest of their lives. I am very proud of this group of which many will also perform for the 60th Anniversary of the Seaway opening in September.
The following students participated in the event:
Peyton Brown, Marcella Perry, Kaydence Ladison, Carly Lalone, Carly Garcia, Meghan Lambert, Destiny Lavare, Emmalyn Taraska, Jillian Chapman, Brenna Strickland, Mekayla Fountaine, Carly Beckstead, Aidan O’Neil and Gideon Jaggers, Aidan Shantie, Micah Avery, Kaleb Dailey, Ian Bigness, Nick Rubacha, Jack Witkop, Joey Marcello, Morgan Deragon, Juliana Miller, Gina Seward and Brendan O’Neil.
