LB String Musicians Head to Festival

Long Beach High School students Sophia Elenson, Claire Ezratty, Joshua Kapilian and Jorge Romero were selected to perform in the Long Island String Festival Association’s Nassau Secondary Festival based on the outstanding results they achieved at the New York State School Music Association festivals. They represent the most skilled and talented string musicians in their age group.

Sophia is a freshman and plays the bass. This will be her second LISFA performance and she is a two-time All-County musician. Claire, a junior and cellist, will participate in LISFA for the fourth time and has been selected to All-County three times. Joshua, a sophomore and violist, has participated in All-County four times. Jorge, a senior, plays the violin. This will be his second time performing at LISFA and he is also a four-time All-County student.

The festival will be held on Nov. 18 at Munsey Park Elementary School in Manhasset.
