Top String Musicians

Eight string players, grades 5-12, represented the district and their respective schools as participants in the 2014 Long Island String Festival Association String Ensembles.

These talented musicians were selected from among the very best student string players in Suffolk County. Selection to a LISFA ensemble is a highly competitive process, based on superior scores at the annual New York State School Music Association solo festivals and school music instructor recommendations. The LISFA concerts were held in January and February.
