CSAT Music Teacher Part of Grammy Winning Performance Group


CSAT is thrilled to congratulate one of our own, Mark Struckmann, for his participation in a Grammy Award winning performance!


Mr. Struckmann, Elementary School music teacher, is a four-year member of the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, which was awarded a GRAMMY for ‘Best Choral Performance’ at the 63rd annual awards ceremony held virtually on Sunday, March 14.


The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, UCLA Chamber Singers, and composer Richard Danielpour, under the direction of Maestro JoAnn Falletta were recognized for their choral performance “Danielpour: The Passion of Yeshua!”


Mr. Struckmann has been a member of the CSAT family since 2002. In addition to teaching music, he is active with the Elementary School's Young Gentleman's Club, a mentoring program for elementary students to learn proper etiquette and prepare them for the real world. His dedication and commitment to music (within the CSAT walls and beyond) showcases how lucky our school is to have him as part of our fine arts team.


The entire CSAT community congratulates Mr. Struckmann and his fellow performers on this wonderful honor.
