Leo Glassman, a senior at Lynbrook High School was recently selected to perform double bass in the 2019 National Association for Music Education All-Eastern Honors Concert Band. Leo will join more than 780 exceptional high school musicians from across the Eastern region of the United States to perform in ensembles during the conference from April 4-7 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 

To be selected for this honor, students must be a junior or a senior and have previously been chosen to participate in All-State festivals. The students are then evaluated by members of the Eastern Division for consideration. This year, Leo has also been selected for the Nassau Music Educators Association’s All-County Festival, the Long Island String Festival Association’s 2019 Nassau County Intermediate Festival, the New York State School Music Association All-State Conference and was selected as an alternate for the National Association for Music Education’s All-National honors ensemble.

With the help of orchestra director Alyssa White and band director Brian White, Leo will prepare the challenging music in the following months leading up to the conference. Here, the selected student-musicians will rehearse for three days with one of five prominent conductors. Leo will be among 150 top high school instrumentalists in the Concert Band who will perform in a culminating concert on April 7. 

Congratulations, Leo on this outstanding accomplishment!
