District Coordinator of Music and the Arts
Welcome to the 2020-2021 Fine and Performing Arts page! This year our music and art students will have opportnities to participate in virtual learning, performances, exhibits and festivals. The 2021 Virtual NYSSMA Festivals application is now available and are due back to your school music teacher by February 5, 2021. Please see your school music teacher for the application or download it from this website.
The Garden City Music Department has once again earned the distinction of being named NAMM Best Communities for Music Education in the nation.
As always, I am proud to announce the tremendous achievements earned by our music and art students. Every year, Art Department students are selected to participate in ASA All-County, Go Ape, The Heckscher Museum of Art Long Island's Best exhibitions, to name a few. In music, one student was selected to participate in the virtual 2020 All-National Honor Ensembles program and three students were accepted to participate in the virtual All-State NYSSMA Winter Conference with two additional students selected as alternates!
Congratulations to all our students for your excellent accomplishments in the Arts!
