Sobol Recognized for Contributions

Sobol Recognized for Contributions
Smithtown alumni Joseph Rutkowski (1972) and Michael Salzman (1979), along with former superintendent Dr. Michael Walsh, presented a workshop about former Smithtown music teacher Lawrence Sobol at the recent New York State School Music Association’s 82nd winter conference.

The presentation focused on Sobol’s contributions to the music program in Smithtown schools. Sobol balanced his career as a professional clarinetist and music educator. During his tenure in Smithtown, he established the Gala concerts, which serve as a major scholarship fundraiser for the district, and the music parent booster organization, the Smithtown Friends of Music.
