Four talented student-musicians from the Levittown Public Schools recently received honors from the New York State School Music Association. General Douglas MacArthur High School senior Paul Giorlando will play the trumpet in the symphony orchestra and junior Emily Zhang will play the Bb clarinet in the wind ensemble at the annual NYSSMA All-State Winter Conference in Rochester from Dec. 5-8. In addition, Division Avenue High School junior Danielle Tear and General Douglas MacArthur High School senior Valerie Thomas were selected as alternates for cello.
Students earned the prestigious honor to perform in these ensembles based on NYSSMA auditions last spring during solo and ensemble festivals. The district congratulates all four student-musicians on this outstanding achievement.
