The district congratulates the fourth- and fifth-grade students of Sycamore Elementary School’s chorus program for receiving a Gold rating for the third year in a row at the NYSSMA Majors competition held at Centereach High School.

No strangers to musical success, this is the fifth year that the fourth- and fifth-grade chorus students have attended the NYSSMA Majors, as they performed three songs for two judges and were rewarded with constructive criticism to help them improve their vocal and choral singing technique. Additionally, the judges complimented the chorus on their hard work, beautiful tone and attention to details.  

“The students have been working very hard all spring on their music,” said Rachel White, Sycamore Avenue Elementary School music teacher. “After their performance review, we talked about how we can continue to improve, while celebrating our success; this was a great learning opportunity!”
