Toms River Teacher Performs at White House


South Toms River Elementary School’s vocal music and strings teacher, Dr. Josh Melson, was the piano accompanist on December 19th and 20th for a Cypress, Texas choir as they performed in Washington, D.C. during the “Time-Honored Traditions: Christmas at the White House.”

While at the White House, Dr. Melson also had the privilege of being asked to conduct the choir as they sang two different songs. The choir performed in the East Room, the largest room of the Executive Mansion in the White House, which was also used in the first White House Christmas celebration.

White House visitors enjoyed the festive decorations and guest musical talents of the “people’s house” during this very special time of year.
