Our students are hard at work. Last week they competed in 2 competitions, followed 5 conductors, attended 7 concerts and practiced nearly 2,000 hours!
Today, we welcome over 20 second week students and embark on Private Practice Marathon.
Here’s to another week of fun and masterful music!

Ocean City has been one of New Jersey’s top summer vacation spots for years. Since the end of October, residents and volunteers from throughout the country have been hard at work to rebuild their beloved home and get the town ready for vacation season 2013. Businesses, homes, and beaches a like, were torn apart and ravaged when Sandy made her way through our coast. Ocean City’s South end was among the hardest hit on October 29th. Stewart Farrell, founder and director of the Coastal Research Center at Richard Stockton College, and staff have estimated that as much as 600,000 cubic yards of sand may be needed to replenish the south-end beaches due to the destruction from Hurricane Sandy. The town was left with crumbling bridges and sections of boardwalks and washing away protective dunes and chunks of beachfront along New Jersey’s 127-mile coastline. Estimated costs to rebuild this once dream time are over $16 million.
This Saturday, April 20th, the Philadelphia International Music Festival (PIMF) will be hosting an event featuring Madison and Michal Marcucci, both PIMF alumni. The Marcucci sisters will be performing a one-night only classical music concert to help raise money for Ocean City’s rebuilding efforts. This evening of beautiful music, to bring tourism and beauty back to the shore will begin at 7pm. Madison is a graduate of the Juilliard School, while Michal student with the Baptist Regional School in Haddon Heights. The Marcucci sisters have spent almost every summer of their lives at the Jersey Shore. They will be performing pieces from Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Bach, and Vivaldi at Ocean City Tabernacle.
