Photo: Rocky Point Choral Groups Earn Gold Ratings

Rocky Point fourth and fifth-grade music groups earn high marks at NYSSMA evaluations.

fourth and fifth-grade intermediate chorus, under the direction of choral instructor Craig Knapp, acquired a “Gold with Distinction” rating for their Level 2 program performance at the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Organization Evaluation Festival held at Longwood Junior High School.

The fifth-grade select chorus, High Notes, received a “Gold” rating for their Level 3 performance as well.

“Earning such awards confirms what I already know about the students and music program at JAE," Knapp said. "The students certainly deserve this recognition.”

During the competition, the choruses sang three selections and were judged by two certified NYSSMA Major Organization adjudicators. The students were evaluated on tone, intonation, balance, technique, accuracy of execution, diction, interpretation and influencing factors.

Outstanding job all around. Mr. Knapp is a treasure to our district. My kids all have a wonderful love of music they may have never nurtured to the extent they have, had it not been for Mr. Knapp. They will have that forever. I tip my hat to the man and hope that everyone in Rocky Point realizes just how lucky we are to have him.
