Five Long Beach Middle School students participated in the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra of New York’s "One SINGular Sunday" event on Feb. 10, held at the Jeanne Rimsky Theater at Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington. Seventh-grader Sam Adler and sixth-graders Melinda DeSantis, Jessica Greenblatt, Maggie Keating and Matthew McCaffrey attended several informative workshops that strengthened their skills and introduced them to new experiences in music. 

The students had the opportunity to take part in choral music rehearsals led by Hofstra University Director of Choral Studies Dr. David Frying, a musical theater workshop run by Jericho Schools Mindfulness Specialist Andrea Gonnella and a mindfulness workshop presented by Long Island Music Theatre Festival Founder and Artistic Director Steven Altinel.
