Locust Valley sends 36 musicians to All-County festivals

Thirty-six musicians and vocalists from the Locust Valley Central School District participated in All-County festivals over the first two weekends of January.

Once again, music educators and students in the district showed their incredible dedication and talent. Throughout the school year, the bands, orchestras and singers continually improve through hours and practice and their seasonal concerts.

Students were nominated by their teachers and selected in the fall by the Nassau Music Educators Association to perform in rehearsals at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts on the Long Island University campus with an opportunity to attain All-County status. A committee of music educators selects the students who will perform in the various groups.

“We could not be prouder of these exceptional music students and their talents that were showcased at the NMEA All-County Music Festival,” the district’s Coordinator of Instructional Technology and Fine and Applied Arts AnnMarie Buonaspina said. “Their passion for music will continue to inspire and resonate with all who hear it.”
