John Lewis Childs School student Sofia Dellagiovanna and Floral Park-Bellerose School student Emma Vlassis were selected to represent the district’s orchestra program by attending the 80th anniversary celebration of the Kolstein Music Center. According to orchestra teacher David Elyaho, both Sofia and Emma have demonstrated tremendous leadership skills within the orchestra, are always prepared for lessons, have consistently participated in NYSSMA at an above average performance level, and have been selected to perform with groups such as All-County and LISFA. In doing so, these two serious string music students were provided the opportunity to visit Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center to watch the Children’s Orchestra Society’s (COS) annual Lincoln Center Concert on May 22. This performance is one that features some of the finest scholastic student musicians and the opportunity to attend is provided by Kolstein’s (in partnership with COS) in order to further nurture and encourage orchestra students.
