Pioneer Music Ensemble
Since its beginnings, the Music Department of our school has established a very strong culture of performers (solo and ensembles.) We have always had and continue to have numerous talented students who appear to be gifted in various ways musically speaking. The passion, dedication and encouragement has always been present; therefore, Pioneer Academy has always been a crib of musical ensembles starting from Rock Bands to Classical, Jazz and Contemporary ensembles. The music clubs usually serve as the powerhouse for preparing and polishing the performances as the classes equip students with the necessary musical knowledge.
The Music Ensembles of Pioneer academy have produced and nurtured composers, vocalists, virtuosos, competitive musicians at a world level and Prize Recipients who have had the opportunity to be accepted as part of festivals and competitions throughout the country and abroad. It is worth mentioning;
Genius Olympiad Gold and Bronze Medal winner
Staten Island Music Festival participants
The Colors of the World Festival held in NYC, Toronto, Frankfurt
High award recipient composer in the Wayne District Festival of Composers in New Jersey
Lastly, the Pioneer Academy ensembles stand out for their original creative formats that appear every year dictated by the curricular frames of the school's administrators and instructors. It is worth mentioning the Music Exhibitions and the Live Lounge that unfold every year new and novice elements in the world of musical performance.
