Music teacher, 2 students perform with Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus

LACKAWANNA (May 25, 2018) - Congratulations to Lackawanna Middle/High School music teacher and choral director Erin Holmes and high school students Bailey Buckley and Alex Denisco, who performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, singing "Carmina Burana" recently.

Mrs. Holmes and the students were accepted as part of an affiliate program that the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus began a few years ago. This year, Mrs. Holmes took the leap with two students, stating, “It was one of the most wonderful experiences as a performer I have ever had. I am so glad these kids trusted me to give them this opportunity!”

Thanks to parental support, these students rehearsed starting in early March, every Monday from 7-10 p.m.

Mr. Calvin Rice, Lackawanna Middle/High School band teacher, and Assistant High School Principal Mr. Andres Arroyo were in attendance supporting the trio for the performance.
