Performing at Festivals

As a result of a rigorous application process, seven student-musicians were selected to perform at two of the region’s most coveted festivals – LISFA and the All-County Percussion Ensemble.

Seventh-grader Lauren Ragen (violin), ninth-grader Sophia Sherman (violin) and 10th-grader Emma Schubart (violin) represented Babylon at the Long Island String Festival, along with fifth-grader Sachi Onishi (violin) and sixth-grader Ethan Schubart (viola). Senior Christian Martino and junior Patrick Roche took part in the All-County Percussion Ensemble.

The students were selected for these honors as a result of their scores at last year’s NYSSMA solo and ensemble festival and based upon the recommendation of their teachers.
