Mr. David Abrams and Chris Ruotolo
Farmingdale High School ninth-grader Chris Ruotolo participated in the New York State Band Directors Association’s (NYSBDA) symposium in early March. NYSBDA is the premier educational organization for band directors in New York. Ruotolo, a trombone player, was nominated to play with the High School Honor Band in this symposium by high school music teacher Mr. David Abrams.
Chris Ruotolo was handpicked among hundreds of applicants from all grades across New York. Musicians selected to appear engaged in several rehearsals and attended leadership and musicality seminars. The symposium concluded with the High School Honor Band concert.
Congratulations to Chris and his nominating teacher, Mr. David Abrams.
