Secondary Students Participate in District-Wide Strings Festival

For the first time since 2019, students in the North Syracuse Central School District had the opportunity to participate in the District-wide String Festival featuring all the orchestra students in grades 7-12.  At the March 23 concert at North Syracuse Junior High School, orchestras from each school performed individual selections and at the end, everyone came together playing “Ode to Joy,” a particularly fitting song for the occasion.

Emily Guarino, an orchestra teacher at Roxboro Road Middle School and the Chair of the district's Music Department, was excited to bring the event back. She said, “All the orchestra teachers are so pleased to have this event back this year after several years due to COVID restrictions.  Having the opportunity for our students to perform for a live audience again is so special and at the core of why we do what we do!”
