It's midterms week at Farmingdale High School but senior Rebecca Kenjesky and freshman William Herbert graciously donated their free time to work with Northside teacher Nicole Nappi's music classes.

Students had a fantastic time learning about various jobs in musical theater, acting, and how music inspires specific emotions. Northside students even learned about the musical Pippin, where Rebecca and William were the leads this past November. Rebecca and William performed a duet, taught students a song and dance, and signed autographs.

"It's wonderful to have extraordinary Northside alumni come back to show the students what their futures could look like in the performing arts, said music teacher Nicole Nappi. "Thank you, Mr. Febbraro and Dr. Peterson, for allowing me to make this happen!"

Each year, the Nassau Music Educators Association (NMEA) selects the best student musicians from schools throughout the county to participate in its annual All-County Festival. Held in January at Long Island University’s Tilles Center in Brookville, this year’s festival featured 103 representatives from Farmingdale Schools! These talented musicians in grades 5-12 were chosen based on teachers’ nominations and their outstanding scores in the New York State School Music Association’s (NYSSMA) 2022 Adjudication Festival. Farmingdale students participated in ensembles across five divisions: band, orchestra, chorus, jazz band, and jazz chorus.

These tremendous accomplishments would not be possible without the hard work and support of our music educators, who worked with our students for months to prepare for the festival.
