Student chorus gives joy to music teacher

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I wish to acknowledge Jonny Priano and the Wilmington Area High School Chorus for the beautiful tribute to beloved former elementary school music teacher, Cynthia Magyary.

On a sunny, crisp March afternoon, two Wilmington school buses pulled up in front of Cynthia’s home and the students gathered on her lawn and sang “God Bless the USA,” “Someday” and “It is Well with My Soul.”

Never have angels sang more beautifully. If only those students could have seen the beaming smile on the face of their elementary music teacher.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
