A Day of Strings
Two High School student-musicians recently participated in String Day at
the Long Island University Post campus on April 8. During the event,
Grace DelSeni and Stephanie Searing attended master classes instructed
by LIU music faculty members, learned about audition preparation and
sight read music in a group reading session.
For his outstanding musical abilities, Shoreham-Wading River High School
senior Rohin McIntosh was invited to perform at the prestigious
National Association for Music Education All-Eastern Conference in
Atlantic City, April 5-8.
Rohin was selected based on his performances at NYSSMA and teacher
recommendations. This is not the first time that he has been recognized
for his singing talents. In the past, he has been invited to participate
in the All-National, All-State and All-County conferences.
Rohin has been participating in chorus since the fifth grade and was
first introduced to singing by his mother, who is a classical Indian
singer. In addition to his vocal abilities, McIntosh is a classical
pianist and participates in his school’s Vocal Express a capella group
and school thespian performances.
Aside from having musical talent, Rohin is an academic scholar who is a
member of his school’s Brainstormers and Mathleetes teams and varsity
tennis team. He is also an Eagle Scout.
In the fall, Rohin will attend Princeton University to study biophysics and math with a possible minor in music.
