Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Ellen RutkowskiEllen Rutkowski picture

 I teach High School music (History of Rock & Roll, Chorus I, II, III, and IV, Music Theory Honors I & II, 9th Grade General Music) and Kindergarten and Grade 1 General Music.  In addition, I am Chorus Director for both the Ed Center and High School Choruses, and I also direct the annual Musical Production.  I teach part time in Marywood University's Department of Music, Theater, and Dance, and I am a professional performer.

I want to share some of the wonderful things that are happening at GNA. These are just some of the accomplishments from my department: The GNA HS Chorus performed at the Luzerne County Courthouse and also sang for residents of two local nursing homes on Friday. Four students qualified through competitive audition for District Chorus, and a fifth is first alternate and may be called at any time. The elementary, ed center, and high school choruses held their annual winter concert on December 4th. Five 7th graders were selected to participate in Marywood University's Wind Band Celebration on December 6th and 7th. Nine high school students were selected to participate in Marywood's Senior Wind Band Celebration, which will be held in January. Our concert and jazz bands just held their public concert on Thursday
