On Wednesday, March 30, 2016 and Thursday, March 31, 2016, twenty Grade 5 students from Kramer Lane Elementary School participated in this year's NYSSMA festival. Students rehearsed their music several days a week with Mrs. Todor, Dr. Petruzzi, and Mr. Wibben during their music lessons or recess time. The students performed a solo, several scales, and had to sight-read a piece of music all in front of a NYSSMA judge. The judge evaluated the students on criteria such as tone, intonation, technique, accuracy of the notes/rhythm, tempo, phrasing, expression, and more! Two Grade 4 Kramer Lane students, Austin Xhong and Benjamin Friedrich also participated in NYSSMA on the piano earlier in the school year. Congratulations to all of the students on their hard work, successful performances, and outstanding scores!
