The Board of Education recognized student musicians for their acceptance into the 2017 All-County Music Festival All-County honors and for their participation in LISFA (Long Island String Festival Association). William Margiotta, Music Curriculum Coordinator introduced the honorees.

The All-County Festival is a major performance festival hosted by the Nassau Music Educator's Association (NMEA) for band, jazz band, chorus and orchestra. Student nominations are based on NYSSMA scores and teacher recommendations. 

The success of LISFA lies in the strength of the string teachers on Long Island, their talented students, the parents who support their musical development and the quality of the conductors who together celebrate the power of music.

Bravo to the following students and to the music staff for their hard work in making sure their students were well prepared.
