May 26, 2010 - The Blue Creek orchestra debuted “The Green Drakkoman”, an
original composition by Alan Danahy of Niskayuna, at their
spring concert last night. The orchestra was joined by Blue
Creek 4th graders and alumni from Shaker Junior High
School and Shaker High School.
In front of a capacity crowd at Shaker High
School, Blue Creek students paid a fitting tribute to their
former classmate, Ben Stowell, who passed away in October after
a four year battle with a rare type of bone cancer.
"The Green Drakkoman" was a superhero,
created by Ben, to help him fight his disease.
