Four Long Beach High School musicians have earned acceptances into the NYSSMA All-State Conference. Congratulations to Delphine Esformes, Abel Rodriguez, Matthias Roth and Danielle Shokrian on this achievement. They will perform in a virtual concert, as this year’s Winter Conference has been cancelled due to the pandemic. 

Delphine plays the alto saxophone and was selected as an alternate for the second consecutive year. She has participated in All-County ensembles in the past. Abel will play the violin in the All-State Symphonic Orchestra. He has performed in All-County ensembles as well as the Long Island String Festival Association concerts and is involved in Soundwaves this year at school. 

Matthias, a baritone saxophonist, joins the All-State Wind Ensemble after performing in the All-State Symphonic Band last year, when he was also selected as an alternate on the alto saxophone. He has participated in All-County every year since the fifth grade and the Nassau-Suffolk Performing Arts opportunities since the eighth grade. He has additionally played the drums and piano. Danielle plays the clarinet and was selected to the All-State Symphonic Band. Last year, she performed in the All-State Wind Ensemble and she participated in All-County for several years prior to that. She also plays the saxophone in the high school jazz band.
