Musical pieces such as Summertime, When Johnny Comes Marching Home, Theme from Schlindler’s List and America from West Side Story help celebrate the diversity that is America!
In addition, a special composition by former student, John Chatterton, highlights the talent of students coming out of Oswego and Fulton’s music programs.
