It’s the Big Apple for SFX


Music students fromSt. Francis Xavier Ca- tholic High School (SFX), inHammond, are going on a trip to NewYork City this spring, with a few other stops along the way. The 21st annual SFXMusic Appreciation trip will be bringing students to New York City (NYC), Boston, and Salem in May. The class goes on a year-end trip each year, alter- nating betweenNYC, Chicago, andWashing- ton D.C. This year’s trip will take the kids to the Big Apple. “The kids are great,” said Music teacher Stephen Pankiewicz. “We’ve never had any issues. The kids look so forward to this trip. We have had a few passport issues. Kids for- get their passports and we get a little delayed, but it all works out, and we all have a great time.” InNYC the group will see three Broadway musicals including Aladdin, School of Rock, and Something Rotten.

“We try to see shows that you can’t see anywhere else,” said Pankiewicz. “We don’t want to go to a show that you can catch at the NAC.” While there, the students will also visit Madison Square Garden, Times Square, the famous Brooklyn Bridge, OneWorld Trade, the 9/11Memorial, the Staten Island Ferry, theMuseumof Modern Art, and also a live-

on-stage magic show. In Boston the kids will have the oppor- tunity to see the world-famous Blue Man Group and its surreal stage show and go to a Jazz Club near Harvard. In Salem the kids will see a private historical performance put on for their group only. Kids have beenworking feverishly to raise money for their trip. So far, they have raised

$140,000.They have a huge fundraising event each October, at the House of Terror at Can- namore Orchard, which significantly reduces the price of the trip. “This is themost ambitious trip our scho- ol has ever undertaken,” laughed Pankiewicz. “Eighty-four students, six chaperons, seven days. That’s nearly a quarter of the school’s population.”
