Island Trees High School Composer Featured at NYSSMA All-State Conference
Island Trees High School student composer, senior Lily Kljyan, has been recognized by the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) for her talent in electronic music composition. Lily's original electronic music composition, "Pyramids of Glass" was selected out of hundreds of compositions submitted from all across New York State to be performed at the twenty second Annual Electronic Music Composition Showcase at the NYSSMA All-State Conference held in Rochester, NY. Lily's composition was written while in Island Trees High School's music theory program under the direction of recently retired music teacher Mr. J. Peter Hansen, who started the electronic composition program here at ITHS. Congratulations to Lily for achieving such an honor, and for representing Island Trees at the All-State Electronic Music Composition Showcase!
