Lisha Kill Orchestra Earns Gold With Distinction Award

The Lisha Kill Middle School 7th and 8th grade orchestra captured a Gold with Distinction Award at the NYSSMA Majors Festival held in April at Shaker High School. This is the highest award an orchestra can receive at this event, and the second Gold with Distinction Award for the 7th graders. The combined group, under the direction of Dana Probeyahn, performed an invigorating Level 2 program, which included an arrangement of the Finale from Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
