The Locust Valley Middle School Select Chorus earned a Gold with Distinction rating, the highest rating possible, at the NYSSMA Major Festival held at Hofstra University on May 21.
This is the first year the middle school has had the select chorus, a club approved by the Board of Education to enhance and enrich student opportunities in the arts.
The club’s adviser, Allison Hungate Wood, said that earning the gold distinction during their first time participating in the event is an outstanding accomplishment.
“I am incredibly proud of these dedicated and talented young singers,” Ms. Hungate Wood said.
Congratulations to the following members of the select chorus: Oliver Blaise, Stephanie Chi, Christopher Cooney, Emily Costello, Olivia Del Tatto, Alexander Diaz Gomez, Hope McQuiston, Elizabeth Neumeyer, Lindsay Nikolai, Reilly Souther, Francesca Speringo, Gianna Spinelli, Antonia Vitale and Brandon Warren.
