The sixth grade orchestra and the high school orchestra both received silver medals in the NYSSMA Majors. This is a music festival in which an ensemble performs three pieces of music for two NYSSMA judges. The performance is adjudicated and the group receives an individual rating. The sixth grade orchestra, under the direction of AnnMarie Buonaspina, and the high school orchestra, under the direction of Marc Yavoski, traveled to Hofstra University to participate in the festival.
