Byron-Bergen 10th grader Stephanie Buell

This month, in the small, rural Byron-Bergen Jr. Sr. High School, an audience will see the world premiere of a new musical called “10 Again.”  It was written by the school’s choir director, Larry Tallman.   The students are pretty excited.  Tenth grader Stephanie Buell says being in high school musicals with Mr. Tallman has been a revelation.

Stephanie is also one of our Musicians of Rochester.
