The LVHS Symphonic Band was awarded the “Gold with Distinction” medal at NYSSMA Major Organization Festival. This is the highest honor a performing group can achieve at the festival.

These musicians performed under the direction of Mr. Vincent Guerra, assisted by Miss Lisa Conti. It takes many months of intense preparation and practice to perform at such a professional level.

Bravo to the following extraordinary young musicians on their accomplishment and their hard work, and to their dedicated teachers!
