Four outstanding student-musicians from Schreiber High School have been selected to represent the district at the 2015 New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Winter Conference this December. Two were selected to perform and two will serve as alternates. Additionally, one student has been selected for two instruments.

Port Washington School District Director of Creative Arts Kevin Scully congratulated Jonathan Kobrinsky (double bass, alternate-string orchestra), Jordan Lerner (baritone saxophone-jazz ensemble and alto saxophone, alternate-jazz ensemble), Andrew Lu (violin-string orchestra) and Soobin Seo (violin, alternate-string orchestra) on being recognized as top musicians in the state.

Thousands of students auditioned for this honor last spring at Solo and Ensemble Festivals throughout New York State. Students were chosen to participate based on their proficiency scores achieved at these festivals and teacher recommendations. The conference is scheduled for Dec. 3 at the Rochester Convention Center.

NYSSMA is one of the largest and most successful musical organizations in the country. Nearly 5,000 members belong to NYSSMA with approximately 100,000 students participating annually in spring adjudication festivals. NYSSMA offers about 190 workshops and showcases.
