The Roger Rees Awards and Harmony Helper Celebrate Excellence In Choral Performance With New Award

The Broadway Education Alliance has announced the 2020-2021 winner and finalists of the first annual Harmony Helper sponsored award to recognize outstanding high school choirs.

This award is presented as part of the annual Roger Rees Awards for Excellence in Student Performance celebration of performing arts education programs offered in schools throughout the Greater New York area.

Andrew Goren, founder and CEO, and Josh Totora, Music Supervisor, of Harmony Helper, and professional theatrical Conductor/Music Director Amanda Morton (National Tour, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical) reviewed many submissions from area school choirs. "We are so impressed by the creativity, vocal skills and showmanship of the school choirs in the New York area. In any year, every one of these young singers deserve high praise for artistic excellence. This year in particular when they had to learn complex arrangements remotely. Their performances are remarkable and a testament to the dedication and ingenuity of the Music Directors working in our schools."

Great Neck North High Choir under the leadership of Dr. Pamela Levy, Director at Great Neck High School in Long Island, New York, is the recipient of the first annual Mosaic Award for Group Performance Excellence. On learning that she received this award, Dr. Levy remarked, "The Great Neck North High Choir is thrilled to receive this honor.
