Island Trees Orchestra Students perform at LISFA Festivals!
Island Trees orchestra students were chosen and performed for the Long
Island Strings Festival Association(LISFA) Intermediate and Secondary

The LISFA Festivals give advanced strings students the chance to
play together with other students throughout Nassau County to give them
a memorable musical experience that will last a lifetime. Students
rehearse over three days and perform together on the final day, with a
renowned director chosen by the LISFA Executive Board.
Students are nominated based on their high achievements at the spring
NYSSMA Festival as well as their hard work in their school orchestras.
