A message from

Dr. Nina Prasso
District Coordinator of Music and Art

Welcome to the 2016-2017 Fine and Performing Arts page! Here you can find calendar dates of our many district wide performances and art shows as well as information about NYSSMA (NYSSMA Dates and FAQ's). Community members are always welcomed to attend any of our concerts, art exhibitions and musical productions (see Fine and Performing Arts Calendar UPDATED 2/28/17).

Garden City Music Department continues to earn the distinction of being named one of the Best Communities for Music Education in the nation. In addition, our High School Music Department has once again been named a Grammy Semi-Finalist Signature School. 
Four students were accepted to perform at the All-State Winter Conference with additional two students selected as alternates!  For the first time in Garden City three students were selected to perform at the All-Eastern Conference in Atlantic City.  These honored students have been chosen through a rigorous assessment process involving thousands of the most talented high school students across New York State. In addition,over 100 students in grades 5-12 also earn the honor to represent Garden City at the NMEA All County and LISFA Festivals each year. 
We are also celebrating many successes in our Art Department. Our very talented art students also continue to be selected as winners and are honored each year at the ASA All County exhibit, Go Ape, to name a few.
Congratulations to all our students for your excellent accomplishments in the Arts!
