During the Jan. 9 board of education meeting, the District’s top student-musicians were honored.

Mia Grossman (soprano, mixed chorus), Erin Kelly (soprano, mixed chorus) and Tyler Zapata (trumpet, symphonic band) were congratulated for being named alternates for the New York State School Music Association All-State Music festival. Although these students did not attend the event held in Rochester last month, being named an alternate is a prestigious honor and ranks the students among the most talented throughout New York State.

In addition, Mia (soprano, treble chorus), Erin (soprano, mixed chorus), Katelyn Maddalena (soprano, mixed chorus), Maya McCullough (alto, mixed chorus), Daniel Roach (viola, symphony orchestra), Tyler (trumpet, symphony orchestra) and AutumnMargaret Walthers (alto, mixed chorus) were congratulated for their participation in the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association All-County festival, held at Half Hollow Hills East High School on Nov. 17.  

The district congratulates the students on this outstanding accomplishment.
