The Division Avenue High School String Orchestra in the Levittown Public School District received a Gold Medal following their performance at the New York State School Music Association Major Organization Festival on May 23.

Under the direction of Mark Martufi, students went to the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center to perform. They worked hard for most of the second semester to prepare a Level 5 program for the NYSSMA Festival. They were adjudicated and received a Gold Medal for their efforts. One of the judges called their performance "magical" and "a treat to listen to."

"I am so pleased with our results," Mr. Martufi said. "The group worked hard for months on a difficult program. The tedious rehearsals and attention to detail really paid off."

The Division Avenue String Orchestra is comprised of 56 9th through 12th graders.
