The sixth-grade orchestra earned a gold rating, the highest possible award at the NYSSMA Major Organizational Festival held at Hofstra University on May 23.

The orchestra, conducted by AnnMarie Buonaspina and Marc Yavoski, was required to perform three pieces from the NYSSMA manual and was judged by two adjudicators. 

Congratulations to the members of the orchestra and to Ms. Buonaspina and Mr. Yavoski on this accomplishment!
