Budding baritone horn player Chad Mitchell swelled his cheeks and pumped up the volume — helping add the jazz — during a spring concert at David A. Boody Intermediate School for Magnet Studies in Homecrest, June 3.
The aspiring Leonard Falcone was among a talented group of jazzists, percussionists, string players and vocalists who rocked the house, drawing claps and toe-taps from the rapt crowd, as they drew the school year to a close with a musical celebration in the auditorium of the school at Avenue S.
From rock to classics, the talented bunch wowed the crowd with a sweet medley of ear-pleasers, transforming the auditorium of the school on Avenue S and West Fourth Street into a mini-Lincoln Center.
The annual concert featured performances by the school’s acclaimed symphony orchestra, symphony and jazz bands, and the “The Boody Keys” in addition to the David A. Boody Chorus, and the sixth grade band and string section. The groups have performed at some of the Big Apple’s most prestigious venues, including Gracie Mansion and the Plaza Hotel.
The concert was the “highlight” of Boody’s musical program because it culminated a year’s worth of work by the clever crew, said Principal Dominick D’angelo.
