Registration forms available for summer arts program

Registration forms are now available for the recently announced summer arts education program for Cohoes students, who will have two options to choose from. Both programs are free of charge. Please return completed forms to your school’s main office. Participants will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Park Playhouse

75 students entering grades 4 through 8 will be accepted into the three-week long Park Playhouse musical theatre program running July 9 to 27. The program, covering instruction in dance, acting and voice, will meet at Abram Lansing from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and culminate in a showcase presentation on the stage of the Cohoes Music Hall.

Peak Music

24 students entering grades 4 through 8 will be accepted into a song-writing and video presentation program offered by Peak Music, a new business to downtown Cohoes and adjacent to the Music
Hall. The program also runs July 9 to 27, but will be broken up into three one-week groups based on age. Students will spend half-days working in an age-appropriate, welcoming, supportive, fun, and challenging environment designed to promote creativity, a sense of belonging, community pride, and self-discipline. The program will culminate in the screening of a world premiere of a music video featuring a song written and performed by the participating students.
