All of the students from Laddie A. Decker Sound Beach School students were seated within the top 10 of their sections in both orchestra and band. Violinist Nini Guo was the first student in Miller Place history to sit first chair, first violin, and serve as Concertmaster of the orchestra.


Participation in the concert is part of the District’s ongoing commitment to providing a high-quality music education and supporting students to help them succeed in a range of activities.
