POBJFK String Orchestra Wins First Prize at KPALI

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s JFK High School String Orchestra recently won the $1,000 first prize at the Korean Parents Association of L.I. Music competition. This competition was held as part of the Third Annual Harvest Moon Festival held at Munsey Park Elementary School in Manhasset. The Plainview ensemble played a spirited performance of Overture of the Wind by composer Kirt Mosier. “This is a wonderful experience for our orchestra students,” said Glenn Rubin, longtime director of the ensemble. The community can listen to the Plainview – Old Bethpage JFK Orchestra at its free winter concert on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the high school 50 Kennedy Drive.
