The North High School Choir is a finalist for the Harmony Helper Mosaic Award for Group Performance Excellence, part of the Roger Rees Awards sponsored by the Broadway Education Alliance.

The North High Choir entered the competition with a virtual performance of “The Forest,” the opening number from the musical Octet by Dave Malloy. Fifteen students were involved in the a cappella performance, with each student recording his or her part individually and then bringing the performance together through editing. Their vocal music teacher is Dr. Pamela Levy, performing and fine arts department chair at North High.

The Harmony Helper Mosaic Award is a new award that recognizes the artistry and creativity of diverse and gifted choral ensembles from high schools in the Greater New York area. Award winners will be announced later this month.
