Newsworthy Music Competitions
Mr. Pedas is a person with many talents, said Superintendent of Schools Lawrence Feinsod. Through his efforts, Cranford had many students in state and regional choral groups. We've had more of our students involved than many other towns. |
During his tenure at Hillside Avenue School, Pedas had more than 200 Students chosen for All State Elementary and Junior High Honor Choir. Eight of his students also were chosen for All Eastern United States Honor Choir, while nine were chosen for National Honor Choirs. Likewise, while he taught at Cranford High School, more than 150 of his students were selected for state and regional honor choirs.
