On Friday, March 22, Paul Bessolo, the owner of the music school Rock Island Sound, arranged a concert in which students performed together with their teachers. Thirty-two students from both the Tarrytown and Rye Rock Island Sound schools gathered at the beautiful CV Rich Mansion in White Plains to perform with nine teachers in front of their families and friends. The setlist consisted of old rock classic by Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, but also popular pop songs like Ed Sheeran’s The Shape of You .
Rock Island Sound has been sponsoring such concerts several times a year for a long time now. They offer the great opportunity for students to show off their talents and to get used to what it feels like to be on stage and make music with a professional band.
As an added highlight to the concert, the music school sold lots of merchandise, articles and raffle tickets for the chance to win a brand new guitar. Proud faces throughout the room provided evidence that the sound was good and the evening a great success. Rock Island Sound uploaded a recap of the event with DVD quality video to follow in the near future. https://www.facebook.com/RockIslandSound/videos/376367469626477/ ). –Anna von dem Bussche
