Ms. Roxann Remekie returned to her alma mater to speak with the members of the choruses in grades 7-12 about the importance of the Kellenberg foundation in general and participation in the arts, specifically, can help prepare one for a successful life experience. Roxann shared her journey from the Bro. Joseph C. Fox Latin School, through Kellenberg Memorial High School, college at Syracuse University, and on into the business world at Atlantic Records, NAMIC, Goldman Sachs, and now as owner of her own production company, 37th St. Productions.
Students enjoyed not only her insight into how a Kellenberg education made a difference in her life in the arts, but also enjoyed hearing her perform in video clips that she presented, but singing live with Mr. Clark Blanton. She also provided helpful feedback to the choruses on how to improve their own performances after they sang for her. “This school gave me the tools that I needed to achieve all of the successes that I have had in my life. I feel truly blessed to be a part of the Kellenberg family and to be able to give back to them in some way,” Roxann said. The choruses responded that they felt lucky to have heard her words of wisdom and to have had the opportunity to learn from her.
Roxann took time for a picture with the Jazz chorus, Firebird Swing after working with them in rehearsal.
