Music Pupils’ path leads to Reside radio performances — The Forecaster

  • Mail this site!

PORTLAND — Music pupils at Portland Arts and Technology High School this week have been scheduled to record several holiday favorites — dwell on the tv.

The semester is currently planned for Friday, Dec. 15, following Tuesday’s snowy weather led to the school to reschedule its appointment in 94.9 WHOM, according to Victoria Stubbs, the music teacher in PATHS.

The songs will be aired at various times through the rest of the month, also Stubbs said the station would “provide a shout-out into PATHS” each time that the songs are played.

The station, which can be at One City Center in downtown, performs music from the 1980s by now, also can be heard across northern New England.

But in the time of year, WHOM performs Christmas music all the time, and that is why the high school pupils were  encouraged to do holiday songs live on the morning show.

“We jumped at the opportunity and we’re awaiting it,” Stubbs said prior to this recording session. “This is a new venture for the music program in PATHS. We have never done a live radio operation. … This is a new experience for the pupils also. Some of them have completed talk interviews with the radio in the past, but this can be a first for performing live.”

The pupils are slated to do three vacation songs: “All I Want for Christmas is You,”“Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “My Favorite Things.”

Stubbs said seven pupils from the music program in PATHS were chosen to take part: Siama Green and Olivia Vail from Deering High School,Megan Walz from Portland High School, Jazmine Margel in Scarborough High School, along with Delaney Clifford in Bonny Eagle High School at Standish.

The musicians are Alden Bertinet in Gorham High School on guitar along with Logan Strout from Windham High School on drums.

Stubbs explained the song choice for the live radio session started with interested students picking their preferred holiday songs, they submitted for review.

“We collectively picked the very best three songs,” she said. “The students have been working on the songs for a couple of weeks. Some sessions were student-led and a few sessions were coached by me.”

Stubbs said that the live radio appearance provides students “exposure to a broad (audience) of radio listeners.”

To get PATHS, it is a opportunity to produce a relation between the music program along with the Portland community, and to spread the word concerning PATHS.

“I hope listeners learn that PATHS is a school full of students who opt to attend according to their interests and passions. This creates an environment that is focused and positive,” Stubbs said. “I (also) hope listeners know that PATHS is a excellent place for high school pupils to find a head start in their career option.”
