Two Middle School Students Honored For Outstanding Talent

PARSIPPANY — Two students from Parsippany schools were among several honored by the Mayo Performing Arts Center as a November Music Student of the Month for being an outstanding vocalist.

Two eighth graders, Aisha Rehan from Central Middle School, and Jalan Royal from Brooklawn Middle School, were honored on stage before the November 8 concert at Mayo PAC.

The students were nominated by their teachers and chosen by Mayo PAC’s education department. At the end of the year, all honored students will be invited to perform in a recital.

Here is what Addam Aguanno had to say about Aisha Rehan:

Aisha has been in Central’s chorus for all of 6th, 7th, and now 8th grade. Her passion for singing and performing has been evident since day one. She’s starred as Miss Hannigan in Annie Jr. and Auntie Em in The Wizard of Oz at CMS. She’s also auditioning for Frozen Jr. this year. Not only is she talented beyond her years, but she’s always musically prepared and willing to sing in any setting. As a vocal leader, she’s an excellent music reader both in chorus and in band as well. She also auditioned for and made North Jersey Junior region chorus as a 7th grade Soprano 1. Her dedication and humility is valued.

Here is what Tiffany Schifano had to say about Jalan Royan:

Jalan is one of the most talented young baritones that I have had the privilege of having in choir in my nine years of teaching at the middle school level. He has a beautiful voice, reads music extremely well and loves to sing all genres of music. Last year he was accepted into the NJSMA region choir as a tenor and he is planning to audition for the NJSMA honors choir as a bass this year. Jalan is very active in our drama club and participated in last year’s production of Guys and Dolls in the role of Rusty Charlie. He is currently in the fall drama production. Jalan also shares his love of music with his peers and community by participating in the school talent shows and singing the national anthem at our school pep rally.
