Once again, a student chamber ensemble from Syosset High School was selected to participate in the Young Musicians Long Island Regional Concert, sponsored by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. These students recently performed at the Hillwood Auditorium at the LIU Post Tilles Center with coaching from a member of the society.

The Syosset ensemble is one of only eight groups from Long Island chosen for this concert. They performed “Piano Quintent in E-flat Major, Op. 44; Allegro ma non troppo” by Robert Schumann. The group is comprised of Caroline Lee (viola), Caroline Ruggiero (violin II), Elizabeth Ruggiero (violin I), Kevin Xu (cello) and Siyu Yang (piano).
