Brooklyn City School’s very own Deandrea Barkley has a variety of performing arts talent which were recently on display as he participated in the 30th anniversary performance of the Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony at Severance Hall. This elite wind ensemble is comprised of the most talented young musicians in Northeast Ohio and Deandrea performed his way through an extensive audition process in the spring to become one of 5 oboe players to make the top ensemble for the 2018-2019 performance season. Specifically this past weekend, the Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony conducted a performance at Severance Hall to commemorate the 30th anniversary of this student group. Deandrea represented Brooklyn with honor and class and the District is proud of him for this monumental accomplishment. Please be sure to congratulate Deandrea when you see him.
