Elmont and Sewanhaka Musicians Participate in Virtual Workshop

Student-musicians from Elmont Memorial High School and Sewanhaka High School participated in a Performance Readiness Virtual Workshop, hosted by the Nassau Educators Music Association, on Feb. 6.

The Elmont Memorial students who participated are Oluwatamilore Akano (pictured), Matthew Hardy, Richard Maldonado and Jenna Prashad (pictured). The Sewanhaka students who participated are Sean Andrade (pictured) and Sofia Jean-Francois.

Students from across Nassau County were able to learn from talented musicians, including wind quintet Imani Winds, New York Philharmonic performer Rebecca Young and soprano Kelley Nassief. The students were permitted to perform for the workshop leaders and receive feedback on how to further craft their musicianship.

This exciting experience provided the students with the opportunity to learn effective practice strategies and repertoire preparation. In addition, they were given feedback on how to properly prepare for NYSSMA adjudications, college auditions and professional performance opportunities.
