The Liverpool High School Symphonic Orchestra, under the direction of LHS music teacher Jefferey Abbott, recently received the coveted "Gold with Distinction" rating, during the annual New York State School Music Association Major Ensembles Festival at Fabius-Pompey Junior-Senior High School.
The orchestra, made up of students in grades 10 to 12, performed a Level 6 music program (the highest difficulty) – featuring selections by Aaron Copland, Benjamin Britten and George Frederic Handel - for a panel of NYSSMA adjudicators.
The "Gold with Distinction" rating is the highest rating that NYSSMA bestows upon any ensemble.
