Glen Cove School District’s Robert M. Finley Middle School Concert Band and Jazz Band traveled to Allentown, Pennsylvania on Friday, May 8 to participate in the Music in the Parks Festival at Dorney Park. The bands competed against groups from all over the northeast.
Under the direction of Nicholas Carbuto, the Concert Band took First Place honors with an average score of 94.5. That score earned them the Overall Award for the middle school band with the highest point total for all middle school bands competing at the festival! Adjudicator Dr. Matthew Behr from Arizona State University gave the band perfect 10s in three of the five categories of adjudication!
In addition, the Jazz Band took First Place with an average score of 92.55, which earned them the Overall Award in jazz as well.
The musical performance, behavior and demeanor of our children were something to be proud of.
