The District has a lot to celebrate, as five students were selected to participate in the LISFA Suffolk Chamber Music Festival on Jan. 4 at Stony Brook University. This is the sixth consecutive year North Babylon has participated in the prestigious LISFA Chamber Festival, as they were one of five districts in the county selected this year. High School student participants included Molly Battaglia, Thomas Bruggemann, Esther Duclair, Ruby Haberman and Heather O’Leary.

In addition, several other students from across the district were also selected to participate in LISFA’s Suffolk Secondary Festival and LISFA’s Suffolk Intermediate Festival. For the Secondary Festival, which was held on Jan. 12 at St. John the Baptist High School, high school student participants included Gavin Aquino, Thomas Bruggemann, Jake Cosentino and Esther Duclair. 

The Intermediate Festival will be held on Jan. 25 at Northport High School and will include students Eren Alptekin, Cynthia Chen and Marilin Chicas from Marion G. Vedder Elementary School; Jason Cusumano and Kendel Wilson from William E. DeLuca Jr. Elementary School; and Robert Moses Middle School’s sixth grader Melanie Kamalic and eighth grader Andrea Ramirez. 

Students were selected based on their exemplary recordings of pieces they performed during a rigorous audition process, as well as teacher nomination.  

The District congratulates all those who were selected for these prestigious events.
