Goff orchestra at 2018 Instrumental FestivalFourth graders from across East Greenbush CSD had the opportunity to hear older students play all of the instruments in the music program as part of the 2018 Instrumental Festival this month.

In addition to each of the bands and orchestras performing as groups on stage, music teachers Scott Halliday and Susan Chrzan talked about each of the instruments and had individual high school students play samples of songs for the audience.

“Today’s instrumental festival was a huge success!” Mr. Halliday said. “Congratulations to all of the students who performed today. You all sounded great!”
