Fifty-four fifth graders from Hicksville elementary schools recently performed at The Division 1 East All-County Music Festival held at The Tilles Center in Brookville on Jan. 8. The event, hosted by Nassau Music Educators Music Association, was an opportunity for select music students who participate in their school’s band, orchestra or chorus to be rewarded for their individual success on their instrument or voice.

All-County provides students with the opportunity to play with some of the finest musicians at their age level in Nassau County. Students were chosen based on their New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) scores from the previous school year, as well as teacher recommendation.  Over thirteen songs were performed throughout the afternoon concert and included some familiar favorites such as “We Will Be” by Jim Papoulis, “Over the Rainbow” by Harold Arlen and Bob Cerulli, and “Rock On” by Seth Gamba.

Congratulations to the following fifth grade students for this wonderful accomplishment representing all seven elementary schools in the Hicksville School District.
