Members of Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School’s Tri-M Music Honor Society recently met with elementary school music students throughout the district in preparation for the upcoming New York State School Music Association Music Festival, scheduled to take place on April 24 at Connetquot High School.

“Throughout the collaborative session, elementary students practiced performing their scales, solos and sight reading for OBMS Tri-M students,” said Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School Music Teacher Melissa Johnson. “In addition to gaining more experience, the young students had the opportunity to interact with upperclassmen and meet the middle school music teachers.”

Each spring, NYSSMA sponsors festivals across the state in which students are given the opportunity to perform solos and small ensembles as a display of musical talent.
