On Thursday evening, Wheatley students and East Williston music faculty partnered with the professional musicians from the disbanded Long Island Philharmonic to present a lovely evening of music and entertainment. Thanks to the timely support from the Bronx Arts Ensemble, we were able to continue this very special program in our school. As part of this program, the professional musicians provide several group tutoring sessions to students who will be participating in this joint concert, leading into a full rehearsal the afternoon of the concert. It is an inspirational evening for all involved!
Given the financial struggles of the Long Island Philharmonic, it is worth reiterating that such an wonderful evening takes place through the support of our Board of Education, Nassau BOCES and the Bronx Arts Ensemble. A special “Thank You” to our very own Angela Luftig for her coordination of this event!
