Islip Student-Musicians Chosen for County Festival

The Islip Public Schools Office of Fine and Performing Arts is proud to announce the selection of 47 students to perform in the Suffolk County Music Educators Association’s All-County Festival.

These All-County student-musicians were chosen to participate based upon their performances at last year’s New York State School Music Association Solo Festival and teacher recommendations. The students are selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants from districts across Suffolk County.

The students are currently preparing for the festival with their school music teachers, and will participate in a series of rehearsals that culminate in concerts during the weekend of March 9. The pieces featured on the concerts are of a high level of difficulty, equal to those performed by college and professional ensembles.
