Three Bethpage High School students recently placed in the Long Island Chapter of The American Association of Italian’s Annual Secondary School Poetry and Arts Contest: Gara di Poesia a Gara di Canto.

The contest required students to recite either a poem or song, which they had to memorize, in Italian. There were approximately 30 contestants from diverse schools in Nassau and Suffolk counties. Italian teachers Francesca Calio and Teresa Sagarese recorded each student’s performance and submitted the videos into the competition.

Junior Julia Miocic received second place in the highest level of Italian. She recited "Memoria," a poem by Natalia Ginzberg which was written in memory of her late husband who died during the Holocaust. 

Additionally, senior Gianna Battaglia placed third for her work reciting a poem from the Italian Renaissance titled "Trionfo di Bacco," which was nearly 30 lines long.

Lastly, junior Gianna Mirabelli captured second place in the modern song competition.  She sang "E più to Penso," a duet featuring Andrea Boccelli and Ariana Grande. 

All three students were awarded with medals and certificates. The district congratulates them on their impressive achievements.

BHS Masquer’s Guild Returns to the Stage

Untitled_design_(37).png thumbnail183175

In a long-awaited return to the stage, the Bethpage High School Masquers Guild presented “The Curtain Calls Broadway Revue” for family, friends and the community on April 23.

Due to Covid-19 safety regulations, the process this year was quite different than others. Director Anthony Murray, choreographer Ilana Linzer, and choral director and producer Michelle Kovacs began virtually meeting in the fall with students to read plays and practice.

In November 2020, auditions for the spring production were done online via FlipGrid. Understanding the different style of audition this year brought, Mr. Murray handpicked pieces for students from their auditions.

“We picked songs that we knew would work for each of them,” he said. “We even included narrative pieces and dance-only numbers for students who don’t prefer to sing, but would still like to be involved.”

After auditions were complete, the selected ensemble began rehearsing through Google Meet. The chosen musical revue was highly adaptable, and the virtual rehearsals seamlessly transitioned to in person. The in-person rehearsal schedule was meticulously organized in order to follow safety regulations, while still ensuring students were also given the space, attention and time needed to perfect their performance. Additionally, due to the style of the revue, each of the 16 students selected to perform were essentially the lead of their own show.

“More students were featured this year than ever before thanks to the format of the musical revue,” Mr. Murray said. “We were able to give each student a unique role that complimented their strengths in performing.”

Each of the performers and all members of the stage crew and audio and visual team were given two tickets for the in-person production. Tickets were free of charge and the school was able to accommodate everyone that was involved in the show. A virtual version of this year’s production will be released, which will include select numbers of last year's performance of “Guys and Dolls,” featuring a student pit conducted by Dr. Eric Kay.

The show went off without a hitch and was a major steppingstone in returning to normalcy after more than a year of being unable to perform. The Masquers Guild would like to extend a special thanks to all those involved, specifically audio and visual lead Rob Verdi, stage crew lead Mike McCourt and Coordinator of Music Dr. Eric Kay.
