Judges for the Long Island Music Festival are chosen based on experience, depth of knowledge, and a shared view of our festivals as a positive, enriching experience for our music students. Past judges have been experienced music educators at the K-12 level, while holding appointments in music performance and education at Long Island colleges. We have also selected judges that have a solid record of participation as administrators, adjudicators and conductors in NYMEA, SCMEA, LISFA, and NYSSMA All-State programs.
