Eight North Middle School students were selected to participate at the Long Island String Festival Association (LISFA) Chamber Music Festival.
String Quartet honorees were Jeremy Bernstein, cello; Brandon Lin, viola; Adam Tsou, violin; and Daniel Zeng, violin. Piano Quartet honorees were Daniel Choi, cello; Vera Cho, piano; Albert Jan, violin; and Nina Phillips, violin.
Music teacher Jacquelyn Tomlet, said, “In preparation for this prestigious festival, these students have been practicing a selected chamber work at weekly morning rehearsals since the beginning of the school year. The LISFA Chamber Festival offers a unique opportunity for young people who have dedicated their time to learning and rehearsing music in a small chamber setting.”
At the festival, professional chamber musicians offered students a master class and coaching, followed by the students’ culminating performance.
