RMS String Ensemble Earns Gold at NYSSMA Majors

The Roslyn Middle School String Ensemble earned a ranking of Gold at the NYSSMA Majors—held May 22, 2023 at Hofstra University. The NYSSMA Majors is a program that adjudicates performance groups on their abilities. 

To earn their Gold score, middle school students performed three pieces in front of two esteemed adjudicators, including: "Gauntlet," "Cliffs of Moher," and "North Country Legend." 

“I am very proud of all of our performances this year and our most recent trip to NYSSMA,” said music teacher Marichelle Weill. “ It is a joy to work with students who display such high levels of skill and passion.”

The RMS String Ensemble is a club for orchestra students who seek out additional performance opportunities.
