Seven Bellport High School musicians were selected to participate in the prestigious 2022 High School All-County Music Festival, sponsored by The Suffolk Chapter of the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education and the Suffolk Music Educators’ Association.
This year, Bellport had representatives in four performing groups, the All-County Treble Choir, Mixed Chorus, Symphonic Band and Symphony Orchestra. Over 14 hours of rehearsals culminated in a concert performance at Half Hollow Hills High School East on Friday, Nov. 18.
The students were selected based on their NYSSMA Solo Festival rating and nominations submitted by school music teachers last June. This festival recognizes Suffolk’s most accomplished high school music students in grades 11 and 12.
