“Our performance of “That Ever I Saw” by Damon Meader, “Lily of the Valley”, and “Freedom is in Your Hand” by Anders Nyberg was adjudicated by two music professors,” said Waldorf’s music teacher Mr. Andy Fallu. “Afterwards, the ensemble participated in a singing-clinic where we received feedback and the rank of ‘Excellent’.”
The Long Island Music Festival provides an opportunity for elementary, middle and high school student musical ensembles on Long Island to come together in a positive learning environment. The performance session consists of an adjudication session that lasts approximately 20 minutes, during which a panel of experienced music educators provide constructive feedback.
“The students also had the opportunity to work with Dr. James John from Queens College’s Aaron Copland School of Music, who focused and expanded on the musical aspects of our performance,” said Mr. Fallu. “I was incredibly proud of the work the students put into this performance.”
After the Long Island Music Festival, the groups enjoyed a fun afternoon at Splish Splash Water Park in Calverton, Long Island.
