Lawrence Public Schools hosted the Nassau Music Educators Association Division 1 West All County Festival for the fifth year during the first week of January. 5th grade students from schools throughout Nassau County attended rehearsals at the Broadway Campus. Close to 600 students, were greeted by Lawrence Music Honor Society students, Music staff and our MPO for three days of rehearsals. Thanks to the Facilities and Custodial staff, District, LMS and LES Administration teams, staff and parents for all of their support. Everyone felt welcomed and the festival was a success! Special thanks to Dr. Pedersen who gave a wonderful welcome address at the concert held at the Tilles Center to a full capacity audience of Nassau County families about hard work, empathy and GRIT.
Our MS & HS students attended other host district festivals during the second week of January for All County rehearsals. Congratulations to Thalia Calderon, Bridget Gordillo, Danielle Domanas, Angel Bran, Leslie Melendez, Stephanie Lopez, Matthew Sharin and Emma Urgen on a job well done!
