Island Trees HS Orchestra Students Chosen for Long Island Strings Secondary Festival
Island Trees High School orchestra students, Jasmine Yee, grade 11, and Faith Bentivegna, grade 10, both violinists, were chosen to represent Island Trees High School at the prestigious Long Island Strings Festival Association's (LISFA) Secondary String Festival. Jasmine and Faith will be rehearsing and performing at LISFA the weekend of November 18th-20th, the concert being Sunday, November 20th at Manhasset High School. The students were chosen from their outstanding performance at last year's NYSSMA Solo Evaluation Festival. The students will attend intensive rehearsals for two days before the concert on the last day of the festival. We wish all the best to Jasmine and Faith as they proudly represent Island Trees at the Secondary LISFA Festival, and to their orchestra teacher, Mrs. Leiann McGrory, for her excellent preparation of these talented students.
