Minisink Valley Middle School Chorus Performs for Our Troops in Iraq and Germany

On Monday, December 15 at 11:30 AM our Minisink Valley Middle School 8th Grade Chorus will be performing for our troops overseas. Utilizing the Orange-Ulster BOCES ISDN-based video conferencing technology, the concert will be broadcast simultaneously from 11:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. EST from the New York State Capital and each of the participating schools to soldiers in Najaf, Iraq and the Landstuhl military hospital in Germany.  The two-way connection will also allow all the students in each of the districts to see their audience.  This will mark the second year that our Middle School Music Department has participated in this educational service for our country. Congratulations to our students, teachers, computer and video technicians and administrators who help make this important event happen.
