Students Shine at Music Festivals

Students Shine at Music Festivals photo
More than 25 Hampton Bays High School students were selected to perform in several prestigious music festivals at the local and regional levels, some in more than one festival. 

Twenty-three students were honored with selection to the Hampton Music Educators Association band, chorus and orchestra concerts; six were chosen for the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association All-County band, orchestra and chorus concerts; two were named to Long Island String Festival Association concerts; and one performed at the chorus festival of the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education, Suffolk County.    

The students were selected for the honors after receiving high scores on their performances at the New York State School Music Association Solo Evaluation Festival last spring. 

The district extends its congratulations to the following student-musicians:
