The North High School Choir is the winner of the first annual Harmony Helper Mosaic Award, part of the Roger Rees Awards for Excellence in Student Performance. This awards program is presented by the Broadway Education Alliance.

The Harmony Helper Mosaic Award is a new award that recognizes the artistry and creativity of high school choral groups. The North High Choir entered the competition with a recorded a cappella performance that featured individual students performing their vocal parts remotely. The choir is under the direction of Dr. Pamela Levy, vocal music teacher/performing and fine arts department chair at North High.

Submissions for this regional competition were adjudicated by a professional theatrical conductor/music director, along with executives from Harmony Helper, a music education app.

“We are so impressed by the creativity, vocal skills and showmanship of the school choirs in the New York area,” said representatives from the award program, noting the challenges of learning complex arrangements remotely this school year. “Their performances are remarkable and a testament to the dedication and ingenuity of the Music Directors working in schools.”

The Broadway Education Alliance, presenter of the Roger Rees Awards for Excellence in Student Performance, is a non-profit organization that supports theatre arts education and enrichment programs.
