As an extension of their classroom lessons, 90 members of the P.J. Gelinas Junior High School chorus, band and orchestra embarked on a journey to New York City to attend a Broadway master class with Joel Hatch (lead performer in “Come From Away”) and Jeff Theiss (assistant musical director for the current Broadway production of “The Band Visit”).  

During the workshop, the students were fully engaged in a question-and-answer session with two prominent members of the Broadway community. Many aspects of theater were discussed from the perspective of a performer and a pit orchestra member. 

Following the workshop, the students had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe and attended a performance of “Come From Away” on Broadway.
