OLD BETHPAGE - Some young musicians in Old Bethpage are preparing for some big performances they have coming up.

The Family Residences and Essential Enterprises Jazz Ensemble was established in 2010. Last year, the group of disabled jazz players had 45 performances.

The group's founder Bridget Livingston says that music is her passion.

"To be able to share that with others who thought that was not possible, has actually fulfilled me in ways that are beyond words," says Livingston.
