NJ Urban Public Schools Exhibit Kid Talent

PERTH AMBOY—Education Law Center (ELC), a nonprofit organization advocating on behalf of New Jersey’s public school children for access to an equal and adequate education, celebrates the 12th anniversary of “Kids in Concert” on March 25, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Long Branch High School.

This extraordinary event showcases student talent from urban public schools around New Jersey.  It is free and open to the public.  The theme for this year’s “Kids in Concert” takes a look back: “The 20th Century – By the Decade.” Historic events of specific decades are captured through the eyes of children and different genres of performance.


This year’s line-up includes the A.V. Ceres Elementary School Chorus. Under the direction of Ms. J Richardson-Melech, the chorus enters its third year. This is the second time that they will be performing in Kids in Concert. The chorus consist of grades 3 and 4. With their diversity of students, there is representation from Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean Islands.

ELC’s executive director, David Sciarra notes, “ELC understands that the visual and performing arts are an integral part of a high quality education. By highlighting the dance, instrumental, performance, and singing talents of urban students, Kids in Concert seeks to strengthen the arts in their schools. I encourage everyone in Perth Amboy to come out to cheer for the kids from A.V. Ceres Elementary School on March 25.”
