Valley Stream North High School sophomore Amelia Cossentino was named a winner of the Durrell Blank Scholarship for study at the New York State Summer School of the Arts. This award was presented by the Nassau Music Educators Association (NMEA) Scholarship Committee. 

The scholarship will be paid directly to the program, which is an exclusive opportunity presented to extraordinary young musicians based on their auditions. It is associated with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Amelia will participate as a Tuba musician this summer in Saratoga. 

Amelia is involved in the band and chorus at North and has been a NYSSMA All County participant since the fifth-grade. She also performed in this year’s District Music Festival.
