Young musicians from Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School in the Amityville Union Free School recently impressed judges at the Long Island Music Festival assessment. The chorus and sixth-grade band each received “superior” ratings following their performances on June 8.

The groups performed for trained ensemble adjudicators at the regional festival and received immediate feedback in response to their performances. The chorus was led by music teacher Megan Ashe and the band was conducted by Jolene Maccarone. 

Dr. Fran Fernandez, director of fine and performing arts, said, “Congratulations to the students of these performing ensembles and to their teachers, Ms. Ashe and Mrs. Maccarone, for their fine performances and for representing our district in such a positive way.”
