RBR Hosts Inter-District string
Concert featuring Five Schools and Community Guest Musicians
On October 22, the day was devoted to string music at Red
Bank Regional High School (RBR) hosting an inter-school event featuring RBR,
its sending schools of Red Bank Middle School and Markham Place in Little
Silver as well as the Middletown Bayshore Middle School and High School North.
The event was organized by RBR strings teacher Jeffrey Boga.
Guest artists from the community visited classrooms
conducting special workshops with student musicians during the day and joined
them for the final concert. They included Freelance Baroque Musician Laura
Apello, Freelance Guitarist Kevin Kelly, Monmouth Symphony Orchestra members
Kathryn Morrison and Monmouth Conservatory members Irna Kavolsky and Christina
Villiagomez. Jennifer Brush of Markham
Place Middle School shared the conducting honors with Jeffrey Boga in leading
the students’ culminating performance event.
“RBR has been conducting this community-wide event since
2007,” states Jeffrey Boga. “It is
always so amazing to me, and gratifying to watch a large group of students who
have never met before come together, and after only one day of practice,
perform music so beautifully together.”
