Four students from the Riverhead Central School District recently performed in the Long Island String Festival Association’s Suffolk Intermediate and Secondary festivals, held in January at Hauppauge High School and St. John the Baptist High School, respectively. 

The students, 12th-grader Sarah-Anne Fried, 10th-grader Nathanial Bollerman, eighth-grader Dara Marchini and sixth-grader Luciano Vene, were selected after receiving high scores on their performances at the New York State School Music Association Solo Evaluation Festival last spring. 

Additionally, Fried, a violinist, and Bollerman, a cellist, each earned the exceptional honor of first chair status at the LISFA festival. 

In preparation for the LISFA concerts, the students rehearsed and received instruction from highly regarded guest conductors on advanced repertoire.
