The end of the school year would not be complete without a Night of Music. And because we can't all be together, Landmark High School student, Jack Bram '23, took it upon himself to organize a Virtual Night of Music. Working with teacher Mr. Effinger, Jack put a call out for submissions from students and faculty. He then compiled the submissions with fellow student, Dylan Timpone '23, as emcee. We hope you enjoy this student led Virtual Evening of Music.
