The South Country Music Department is proud to announce that eight Bellport High School musicians were chosen to participate in the 2015 High School All-County Music Festival. The Suffolk Chapter of the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education (NYSCAME) and the Suffolk Music Educators’ Association (SCMEA) sponsor this event jointly.

Bellport has representatives in four performing groups, the All-County Mixed Chorus, Women’s Chorus, Symphonic Band and Symphony Orchestra.  Over 14 hours of rehearsals will culminate in a concert performance at Huntington High School on Friday, November 20, 2015.

Selections were made based upon each student’s NYSSMA Solo Festival rating and nominations submitted by school music teachers last June.

This festival recognizes Suffolk’s most accomplished high school music students in grades 11 and 12. Representing Bellport High School are:

Edward Adler Clarinet Symphonic Band
Ashley Berrell Trombone Symphonic Band
Deanna DiMartino Alto II Women’s Chorus
Shannon Gibbons Alto II Women’s Chorus
Natalie Maida Alto II Mixed Chorus
Rachel Milia French Horn Symphony Orchestra
Lili Salcedo-Watson Cello Symphony Orchestra
Laurel Zimlinghaus Clarinet Symphony Orchestra

The music department is very proud to have Edward, Ashley, Deanna, Shannon, Natalie, Rachel, Lili and Laurel represent Bellport High School and the South Country Central School District at this highly celebrated event!
