Music Students at RL Have Excelled This Year!

Robbins Lane music students have had an exciting 2018-19! These youngsters have performed in winter and spring concerts at both Robbins Lane gymnasium and the H.B. Thompson Middle School auditorium, in Jazz Band, Concert Band, Orchestra, String Ensemble and Chorus. Some of the repertoire the children mastered included medleys from popular movies, classical pieces, pop songs, and traditional ensemble works. General Music students performed Thanksgiving and Holiday music for parents, learned recorder and barred percussion instruments, and sang music from all corners of the globe. Over one hundred students participated in instrumental and vocal NYSSMA as soloists and in duets, achieving excellent and outstanding ratings. Third Grade Orchestra played for their parents and classmates in June, a select ensemble and music staff performed at the Holiday Sing-Along in our vestibule, Pep Band and Robbins Lane staff performed at the Pep Rally in June, and Senior Orchestra and Jazz Band earned Gold ratings at NYSSMA Majors at Hofstra University in May!

Bravissimi to all of our musicians, and to our parents, staff and administrators for giving their all to achieve consistently high levels of performance!
