16 Green Vale School Students Participate in All-County Music Festival

At the Tilles Center in January, 16 Green Vale students performed in the prestigious Nassau All-County Music Festival. To be selected for All-County, students must score among the top student musicians who performed solos for the NYSSMA Festival the previous spring.

Once selected, students from all over Nassau county convene to prepare a program of music in a single week of intensive rehearsals, culminating in the Tilles Center performance.

“Entrance into All-County is highly competitive,” says Jessica Chen, Green Vale chorus director. “Performing a NYSSMA solo at a high level, studying music in preparation for All-County, and participating in the intensive rehearsals takes significant motivation and dedication. We are so proud of our hard-working musicians!”

Green Vale’s All-County performers included Dhruv Kothari (band), Matias Cushman (orchestra), Grace Brook (chorus), Rhys de Haan (chorus), and Graham Lanuti (chorus) in sixth grade; Jack de Haan (orchestra), Anna Sophia Bloch (chorus), and Joshua McKenzie (chorus) in seventh grade; and Ramsey Cammerer (chorus), Susie Dixon (chorus), Samantha Gulden (chorus), Lucy Jervis (chorus), Ava Silverstein (chorus), Harry Smithie (chorus), Samuel Winkler (chorus), and Constantine Yarian (chorus) in eighth grade.
