Middle school musicians got into the spirit of the season on Dec. 5, providing an exciting program of music – including some holiday favorites – at the annual sixth grade winter concert. The evening’s performances featured the band, directed by Allison Jeanes; the orchestra, directed by Laura Shaiman; and the chorus, directed by Richard Magale.

“Transitioning to middle school is a challenge, but sixth graders soon realize that there are great benefits to being at Islip Middle School, among them the wonderful music program, as demonstrated at this concert,” said Dr. Jeff S. Dailey, the district’s interim director of fine and performing arts.
