I interviewed Leanna Strang, a senior at Peekskill High School.  She said that when she came from the middle school, she auditioned in order to become a part of the chorus.  The audition takes place with Mr. Del Casale, Peekskill’s Choral Director. At first, the chorus auditions were simple; however, the City Singers have become more popular and more skilled.  Now the chorus has a cabinet with officials. Leanna Strang is the president; Jordan Alexander is the vice president; Kathryn Czerwinski is the secretary; and Ashley Birmingham is the treasurer.

City Singers now perform at many different places.  Here at Peekskill High School, they perform at many school events from the opening day for teachers to spirit week, and holiday assemblies, to name a few.  

In addition, they’ve performed at public events such as the opening for The Manhattan Transfer, where they sang at the Paramount.  Last Saturday, they performed at the Paramount for “Tri-State Rocks,” and this Saturday, they will again perform at the Paramount for a benefit “Remembering Brian Delma Taylor”–a show by the Daisy Joplin Band.  

Leanna said that Kara Dioguarda, who created the Tri-State Rocks competition, is also a judge on American Idol.  At the Tri-State Rocks competition, kids from New Jersey, New York and Connecticut were represented. This competition was a great experience, and the City Singers represented us well.

The City Singers look forward to many more events this year including local performances, as well as performances right here at Peekskill High School.
