Lawrence Road band students in their marching uniforms

Uniondale had a jam-packed month of stellar performances

Uniondale Union Free School District’s Fine and Performing Arts Department has had an exciting March. The Knights showed off their musical aptitude and artistic talent at events across the nation. 

 The Lawrence Road Middle School Band headed to New York City to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade, where they were the only middle school invited to march in the nationally-televised event. 

 The Rhythm of the Knight Show Choir competed in the Show Choir of America competition in Orlando. After a fierce competition where the Knights put on a show-stopping performance, the Knights took home second place. 

The Uniondale High School Chamber Ensemble also took to the stage, giving an excellent performance at the 12th annual LISFA Chamber Music Festival. The High School Select Strings Orchestra also performed at the Nassau County Art Supervisors Association Annual All-County Art Exhibit at Long Beach. At that event, over 40 Uniondale scholar-artists’ visual artworks were selected for display. 

 “March was an exciting month jam-packed with events for our Fine and Performing Arts Department,” said Kelvin Jenkins, Director of Fine and Performing Arts. “I’m incredibly proud of the hard work and professionalism our scholars put into their chosen craft.”
