The William Floyd High School String Quartet, under the direction of orchestra teacher Christopher Shaughnessy, will be featured on the Saturday, November 11 edition of “Spotlight on Long Island Schools,” a weekly program, airing Saturday mornings at 10:30 am on Long Island News Radio 103.9 FM, which focuses on the positive things happening in schools across Long Island. The show, now in its third season, is hosted by Robert Vecchio, who also serves the William Floyd community as president of the Board of Education.
This quartet, featuring Amanda Cain, Jenna Linsalata, Elizabeth Scianno and Kevin Quintanilla, along with their teacher Mr. Shaughnessy, had the opportunity to discuss with Mr. Vecchio what they love about music, being a student-musician at William Floyd, their plans for the future and more. They also performed two songs for the listening audience.
Additionally, this same group of talented students had the opportunity to perform at a recent Board of Education meeting which was attended by dozens of community residents.
