Livingston Public Schools has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. The award recognizes the commitment of school administrators, community leaders, teachers, and parents who believe in music education and are working to ensure that it is part of a complete education for all children. That was evident of Tuesday, April 4, when more than 400 Livingston students took turns on the high school stage to showcase music in our schools. "The festival is among our favorite concerts as it gives our department the opportunity to not only showcase the hard work and efforts of our students, but to show parents what they can expect as their child progresses through our programs," said Michael Jedwabnik, director of bands.

This year, selections will be heard from the LHS Wind Symphony, HMS Chamber Ensemble, All-Township Elementary Band, HMS Select Chorus, MPM Red Band, MPM Blue Band, MPM Combined Band, and LHS String Orchestra. The LHS Notations Choral group entertained guests as they arrived. The students passed the time warming up, practicing scales, sorting music folders. The backstage was well orchestrated, with students assembled in music rooms and the cafeteria while waiting their cue.
