Thirty-three South Orangetown musicians in grades 5 and 6 were invited to perform in the Rockland County Music Educators Association Intermediate All-County Festival at Clarkstown South High School, March 3-4.

Students spent Friday night and Saturday with other musicians from across the county, preparing music for the All-County Band, Choruses and Orchestra concerts Saturday afternoon.
