APRIL 10: Nyack College Rockland Chorale Spring Concert

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Tuesday March 31, 2015

The Nyack College Rockland County School of Music Spring Concert will be presented on Friday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Pardington Hall, 1 South Boulevard in Nyack, featuring a 30-piece orchestra and the 50-member Chorale.

This free concert will showcase inspiring works such as Samuel Barber’s “Knoxville, Summer of 1915, Beethoven’s “Christ on the Mount of Olives,” and his “Choral Fantasy” and conclude with Isaac Watts’s moving “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.”

Soloists in this powerful production include Nyack’s Artist in Residence, Prof. Shelley Jameson, soprano; sophomore voice major, Hannah Jang, soprano; Patrick Denniston, tenor; Prof. Joel Jameson, bass; Nyack alumni, Nellie Margarita Santiago, soprano, and Katherine Wiswell, mezzo-soprano. Nyack’s Trio in Residence member, Dr. Tammy Lum, pianist will accompany selections.

Joining Prof. Joel Jameson as conductor is Nyack senior, Jamal Sarikoki.

Sarikoki, a conducting major, has also studied with Dr. Elizabeth Swanson from Nyack’s NYC School of Music and is a perfect example of how mentoring music faculty come alongside students to nurture their talent. Jamal, who will also be a soloist at the School's April 17 concert at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center says, "Although I am going into the secular world of music as a conductor, I will be grounded in my faith and in the strong education I have received. The professors here at Nyack have all shown me what it's like to be at the top of their field but walk ever close to Jesus."

Currently Jamal serves at Calvary Baptist Church in Manhattan as a conductor and an organist. He was awarded one of two scholarships to study conducting at Bard Conservatory in the fall. Click here to view Sarikoki at work. 

Come and enjoy an evening of spectacular performances in the beautiful Hudson Valley campus of Nyack College.

Admission is free. You won’t want to miss it!

Service With a Smile #NyackCityServe

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday March 30, 2015

Nyack College was a participating sponsor of the Luis Palau Evangelistic Association’s CityServe event on Saturday, March 28 in New York City. More than 200 students and 20 faculty/staff spent the day at ten sites in the five boroughs of New York City beautifying homeless shelters, parks, and early childhood centers.

Nyack College teams converged on the boroughs via public transportation and vans that transported volunteers from Nyack's Rockland County campus to the City for clean-up, painting, and general maintenance efforts--the Gospel of love in action demonstrating compassion for the welfare of our communities.
