Victoria Csatay, Junior at Pascack Valley High School, Hillsdale. I first want to mention how grateful I am to receive the Governor’s Award for Exceptional Promise in Music.
I am an honors student currently taking multiple AP classes. I am a part of both the debate team and The National Honor Society.
When it comes to music, I have been taking classes at NJPAC since I was 11 years old and I am so grateful for all the opportunities I have been given. I have been blessed to be able to personally work with some of the greats; Ben Vereen, Mark Gross, and Savion Glover, and have performed at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Radio City, and multiple Broadway and Off-Broadway stages. I also recently co-produced a benefit concert at 54below for the BrazilFoundation called Songs For the World.
