Additionally, William Floyd Middle School musicians performed at the Long Island Music Festival in Brentwood earlier this month and received the highest ratings during their non-competitive adjudication. “The highlight of the trip for me was witnessing the camaraderie that developed between all three groups,” said Richard Harris, orchestra director. “Very rarely do our students get to listen to each other perform. At this festival, the students had the opportunity to watch and enjoy the performances of their peers.” Congratulations to all the students and their teachers Dawn Conefry, Richard Harris and Donia Rivera!
