On April 13, three Elwood-John H. Glenn High School band students performed in the 14th annual LIU Post Band Festival at the Tilles Center for Performing Arts.

Sophomore Hannah Kleinman and juniors Ivan Andrade and Abiola Familusi were nominated by their teachers as exceptional musicians, and once accepted into the program, rehearsed intensively for the upcoming performance in the Tilles Festival band, an ensemble composed of the LIU Post Wind Symphony and exceptional high school musicians from across the New York metropolitan area.

The Festival Band was directed and conducted by LIU Post Director of Wind Studies Dr. James McRoy, and 2018 Composer-in-Residence Mark Camphouse. The Festival Band performed four pieces, two of which were of Mr. Camphouse’s own composition.
