Middle School Ensembles Earn Superior Ratings at LI Music Festival

Four Herricks Middle School Ensembles Earn Superior Ratings at LI Music Festival

Honors Ensembles from Herricks Middle School participated in the Long Island Music Festival on June 1 at Suffolk Community College. The Chamber Choir, Chamber Orchestra, Jazz Band, and Wind Ensemble, under the direction of teachers James Ludwig, Krista Weis, Geoffrey Taylor and Nana Aomori, respectively, all received "Superior" ratings. The adjudicators were very impressed with the high level of musicality of all four groups and shared words of praise and comments after each performance. The group then headed to the Long Island Adventure Park in Wheatley Heights, where students and teachers worked together to climb trees and rope ladders and sped down zip lines.
