Music students of the East Meadow School District have been recognized in a variety of ways for their remarkable talents and achievements.

A total of 155 students across the District have been selected to perform in the Nassau Music Educators Association All-County Festivals in January.  Each of the seven concerts will take place at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts.

These student-musicians in grades 5-12 received this honor based on their New York State School Music Association solo evaluation and teacher recommendations.

33 students district-wide have been invited to perform in the Long Island String Festival Association in March at Uniondale High School.

Established in 1956, the association’s mission it to educate young string musicians by providing them the opportunity to work with renowned conductors and musicians from all over the country.

Three seniors at the secondary level have been invited to perform in the National Association for Music Education’s 2017 Biennial Eastern Division Conference from April 5-8 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

NAfME is the world’s largest arts education organization that addresses all aspects of music education.

Michelle Hromin from W.T. Clarke High School will play clarinet in the concert band, Alby Joseph from W.T. Clarke High School will play cello in the orchestra and Arun Sam from East Meadow High School will sing as a Bass I in the mixed choir.

The district extends its congratulations to these exceptional music students and the talented faculty.
