James Wilson Young Middle School eighth-grade flutist Cecily Phua was recently presented with a scholarship to further her musical studies while attending the 2017 Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association Division II East Music Festival.

Cecily will be returning to the Crane School of Music’s Youth Music Program at SUNY Potsdam this summer for the second time, where she will immerse herself in two weeks of robust musical instruction. Her studies at SUNY Potsdam will include performing in band, chamber ensembles and choir as well as attending master classes, music theory and aural skills classes.

“It was a pleasure to be able to recommend Cecily for this scholarship, as she is an extremely talented flutist and is so passionate toward music,” said Matthew Hurst, a music teacher at James Wilson Young Middle School.
