NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Students from schools across New Rochelle take part in the arts in numerous different ways including everything from singing to art to dancing.

Some recent examples offered by Schools Superintendent Brian Osborne, on the Huffington Post, included the New Rochelle High School's chorale singing on stage last month with Grammy award-winning singer Kenny Rogers. The performance was part of Rogers' Christmas Tour.

Osborne said the group was chosen because of the district's reputation for high quality arts programming.

In addition to singing, Osborne said students interested in pursuing the arts after high school can take part in Portfolio Day every fall, an event that allows students access to art-focused colleges through visits from college administrators. Students are able to speak with the reps and showcase some of their work

At the elementary school level, Osborne pointed to Jefferson Elementary's Fourth and Fifth-Grades who just completed a unit with professional artist Cliff Mendelson and art teacher Paolo Firoino to create African masks, while learning about African culture at the same time.

And students interested in theater, Osborne said, performed in the "The Nutcracker " during the holiday season, alongside visiting dancers from Ajkun Ballet Theatre.
