On June 6th, 2008 our program-wide orchestra participated at the PAC/Six Flags festival. Directed by MS223 supervisor Steven Oquendo, the students played 3 selections to a large crowd of music students and aficionados from New York, New jersey and Pennsylvania.
The Orchestra was awarded the gold plaque and was highly praised by the panel of judges. Katherine Delgado, a tenor saxophone player and this Year’s salutatorian at MS223, was awarded the outstanding soloist trophy. We are very proud of our students and their hard work. The rest of the day was spent enjoying the rides at Six Flags amusement park.
