LB Celebrates Record Number of All-County Students photo
A record number of 78 musicians in the Long Beach Public Schools have been accepted to participate in the New York State School Music Association’s All-County Music Festival. The students represent all six buildings and will perform in the Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Instrumental and Vocal Jazz ensembles. 

Long Beach Middle School student Isabelle DePalma was accepted into all three ensembles, and elementary strings students excelled in the highly competitive instruments of viola and violin in All-County as well as the Long Island String Festival Association concerts.  

 The All-County performances take place at the LIU Post Tilles Center for Performing Arts in January. The students earned this prestigious opportunity based on the scores they received at the NYSSMA Solo Evaluation Festival. They represent the most outstanding young musicians in Nassau County and dedicate a great deal of effort to music, with much support and guidance from the Media, Visual and Performing Arts Department.
