Showcasing Musical Talents

The P.J. Gelinas Junior High School String Quartet was selected to perform and participate in learning activities at the LISFA Chamber Music Festival held at Stony Brook University’s Staller Center this January.  

The quartet, comprised of violinists Samuel Catalfo and Benjamin Catalfo, violist Samuel Kim and cellist Janet Song, had the chance to attend a workshop with the Bryant Park Chamber Players and work on their musicianship with professional coaches. At the end of the festival, they performed Mozart’s String Quartet, K. 157 on the Staller Center Recital Hall stage.  

“It was a pleasure to see and hear our string quartet perform so well at this All-County event,” said teacher Alisa Rabbitt. “They represented our school and district in a stellar way.‬”
