GOSHEN — The Allegro Youth Orchestra students made their monthly visit to the Sapphire Rehabilitation Center on Sunday, Oct. 28.

“We’ve been working on some new ‘show’ repertoire that includes ‘Give My Regards to Broadway,’ ‘Over the Rainbow’ and ‘New York, New York,'" said Viktor Prizgintas, who directs the young group. "Max Hershkowitz played the solo violin on ‘Give My Regards to Broadway,’ which was a fitting tribute since his great grandfather was a personal secretary to Irving Berlin who composed the piece.'

Alex Prizgintas, a cellist, also played “My Favorite Things” modeled after John Coltrane’s jazz classic 1961 recording on the album by the very same name.

“It was a pleasant afternoon featuring classical, Broadway, Jazz and even a little traditional Irish music," Viktor Prizgintas added.

"The young players performed with a wonderful sense of style, and most notably, passion,” he added. “With all that they do during the week, it is simply great that we can come together to entertain the residents here once a month.”

Allegro Youth Orchestra will return to Sapphire on Nov. 25.

The youth orchestra has been visiting Sapphire (formerly Elant) for the past 32 months (well, they missed this past June due to exams at school — but they came twice in July).

If you or your organization would like to learn more about Allegro, call 845-774-9723.
