Based on their musical talents Babylon Junior-Senior High School student-musicians earned tremendous success during their recent trip to Williamsburg, Virginia for the WorldStrides OnStage music competition.

The concert band earned a silver rating, while the jazz band, symphonic winds, concert choir, chordettes and senior high orchestra each earned a gold rating. Additionally, the senior high orchestra received the Adjudicator Award for earning an average score of 92 or higher and a trophy for Outstanding Orchestral Group.

Two students, cellist Scott Sgueglia and violinist Jack Bruno, were awarded with the Maestro Award, which is bestowed upon those students who display extraordinary musical ability and sensitivity.

Senior Lindsey Daily was the sole winner of the Ovation Award throughout the entire festival. Lindsay was chosen based on her contribution to the music program, which transcends the making of music, as she represents the spirit of determination, inspiration and service to others that exists in all musicians of Babylon Junior-Senior High School.

Additionally, the entire department won the Festival Sweepstakes Award. To qualify for this honor, schools must enter one choral group, one instrumental group, and a third group of their choice. The school that accumulates the highest number of points toward a perfect score of 300 determines the winner.
