NEW YORK – On Sunday, May 21st, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended the Generations Choral Festival hosted by the Mount Sinai High School Choir. The event, sponsored by the Mount Sinai Friends of the Arts, brought together the Mount Sinai Choir led by conductor Eric Blatt, the Smithtown East Concert Choir lead by conductor Mark Hegreness, the Albany High School Select Chorus led by conductor Brendan Hoffman, the Alumni Choir led by conductor Kristen Acker-Morrow, and the Mass Choir led by conductor Dr. Jonathan Babcock for an afternoon of musical entertainment.
At the festival, Legislator Anker presented certificates of achievement to the members of the Mount Sinai High School Choir for winning first place in the WorldStrides Music Festival in Williamsburg, VA. Last month, the choir traveled to Williamsburg in order to compete against other choral groups from across the country.
“I am proud to be a part of a community that strongly supports music and arts programs,” said Legislator Anker. “The music festival, and the achievements of the Mount Sinai High School Choir, demonstrate the importance of encouraging our youth to foster their musical and artistic talents.”
