s High School String Orchestra recently won the $1,000 first prize at the Korean Parents Association of L.I. Music competition.
The competition was held as part of the third-annual Harvest Moon Festival held at Munsey Park Elementary School in Manhasset. The Plainview ensemble played a spirited performance of Overture of the Wind by composer Kirt Mosier.
“This is a wonderful experience for our orchestra students,” said Glenn Rubin, longtime director of the ensemble.
The community can listen to the Plainview JFK Orchestra at its free winter concert on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. The event will be held at the high school auditorium, 50 Kennedy Drive.
