"I'm very excited to share that I will be performing (violin) with the 3 Penny Chorus and Orchestra on America's Got Talent this coming Tuesday, August 13th at 9:00pm, live at Radio City Music Hall," Dorfman said in an email Thursday. "This is the semi-final round and the finalists are chosen by audience vote. If you're able to watch [and] vote, we would love your support!"
Dorfman is the orchestra and strings teacher at Saxe Middle School for the New Canaan Public Schools Visual & Performing Arts Department.
3 Penny describe themselves as "a volunteer chorus and orchestra in Connecticut. Our volunteers have professions that range from musicians, teachers, pastors, and doctors. We perform classical music - with a twist! Our love for music spans from Bach to Jepsen!"
