Musical talent and skill were on full display as 78 student-musicians from Riverhead High School and Middle School performed at festivals of the Hampton Music Educators Association in January and February. 

On Jan. 12, 25 Riverhead Middle School students represented the district’s band, orchestra and chorus at the HMEA Middle School Festival, where more than 360 student-musicians converged at Riverhead High School to perform under the direction of highly regarded conductors. 

From Riverhead High School, 53 students rehearsed and performed alongside hundreds of exceptional East End student-musicians, with the culminating concert held Feb. 2 at Eastport-South Manor High School. 

All participating musicians were selected to the festivals based on their superior scores at the New York State School Music Association Solo Evaluation Festival held last spring. 
 
The Riverhead Central School District extends its congratulations to all the performers.
