EMHS Wind Ensemble Invited to Perform at NYSSMA Winter Conference

East Meadow High School’s wind ensemble has been invited to perform at the New York State School Music Association’s 81st Annual Winter Conference at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center on Friday, Dec. 2. The group has not received this prestigious honor since 1965.   

To qualify for this opportunity, the ensemble submitted a recording of their winter concert in April and heard at the end of June they were invited to perform. 

The ensemble’s conductor, East Meadow High School Music Department Chairperson Christopher Hale, is exceptionally proud of these talented student-musicians. “Being accepted to perform at the NYSSMA Winter Conference is a tremendous honor and I could not be more proud of this group for their hard work, perseverance and dedication over the past few years,” he said. 

The ensemble, which began preparing for the concert on July 21, will continue rehearsals up until the date of the performance.
