Middle Country Student-Musicians Perform at 64th Annual Senior High School All-County Music Festival

Recently Middle Country Central School District’s student-musicians performed at the 64th Annual Senior High School All-County Music Festival presented by the New York State Council of Administration of Music Education (NYSCAME) and the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association (SCMEA). The concert took place at Half Hollow Hills High School East.

 “We are incredibly proud of our students’ accomplishments and dedication to their passion for music,” said Dr. Diana Cook, Middle Country Central School District Director of Music, Fine Arts, and Community Media Relations. “Congratulations to our All-County musicians and thank you to their teachers, Dr. Harold Goldstein, Ms. Joan Meichner, and Mr. Brian Hough who have guided, mentored, and supported these students as they hone and advance their musical skills.”

The students had the opportunity to rehearse and perform with other outstanding junior and senior student-musicians throughout the county performing major masterworks under the direction of master conductors, Marc Greene, Mixed Chorus conductor, Dr. Jennifer Micelli, Treble Choir conductor, and Michael Cordaro, Symphonic Band conductor.

Students were selected to perform at the 64th Annual Senior High School All-County Music Festival on the basis of the outstanding rating they received as soloists in the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Solo and Ensemble Festival held in the Spring of 2022, along with their music teacher’s recommendation.
