The District is proud to announce that three North Babylon High School Orchestra students have been invited to participate in the 2020 Knights/Tilles Center String Orchestra Convocation. Thomas Bruggemann, Jake Cosentino and Esther DuClair will take the stage at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts on March 1.

This special event is designed for 30 advanced students in 11 and 12 grade to listen, rehearse and perform side-by-side with The Knights, one of the greatest chamber orchestras. 

Esther, Jake and Thomas will be part of this group, under the direction of Co-Artistic Directors Eric Jacobsen and his brother Colin Jacobsen. The students will present a concert that includes the closing movement of Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings and Vivaldi’s Spring.” The Knights will also perform the Mendelssohn Octet Finale and Colin Jacobsen’s “Ascending Bird.”

The District congratulates these students and their nominating teacher, Ms. Nicole Verderosa, for this fantastic achievement.
