After hours and hours of practice, the high school marching bands of the district enjoyed successful performances at the New York City Columbus Day Parade on Oct. 8. The success led to the East Meadow High School marching band earning first place honors while the W.T. Clarke High School marching band garnered fourth place.

“Both of our bands represented our school district with pride and excellence on display for thousands of people on Fifth Avenue,” said Director of Music and Art Christopher Hale. “Many parents lined the street to support our students and to also show their school pride.”

In addition to participation in the New York City parade, the two groups also marched at the Huntington Columbus Day on Oct. 7.

The district congratulates both bands and all administrators on these great achievements and for representing East Meadow proudly!
