Bronxville High School Students Sing with ‘Wicked’ Actors

Members of the Bronxville High School chorus recently went to Broadway to see the musical “Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz” and met with members of the cast.

The trip, which was part of an annual program sponsored by Broadway Choral Workshops, provides students with an opportunity to work with professional actors and singers. The students, who learned a vocal excerpt from the show in advance, performed the arranged song with the cast members and other choir members during a workshop. They also learned a segment of choreography and were treated to a special performance by “Wicked” cast members.

“It is exciting to put the vocal excerpt together with a large group of singers from the New York metropolitan area,” music teacher Pamela Simpson said. “The best part was hearing and seeing what we just learned come to life in the matinee performance.”
