4 LOCAL CHILDREN PERFORM IN OPERA, CORTLANDT SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.Students From Croton's Music School Perform Opera

Four local children from the Cortlandt School of Performing Arts sang in French as the children's chorus for the Taconic Opera's production of Bizet's "Carmen"in White Plains. The children's rehearsal conductor was Carol Arrucci, owner of the music school. "Our music school has arranged for teens to perform amazing shows in NYC and children's choirs in local venues such as The Paramount Hudson Valley. It is important to me that our kids get the experience to sing or play music with professionals.  It's inspirational!" A professional ensemble of instrumentalists, soloists from the Tri-State area and a complete opera chorus completed the experience. Travis Ramirez, an aspiring opera singer at CSPA and Hen Hud High School senior, also performed a main baritone role, La Dancaire, in the opera.
