JFK Sends Four Fifth-Grade Musicians to SCMEA


Four talented young fifth-grade musicians from John F. Kennedy Elementary were recently selected to perform in the Suffolk County Music Educators Association All-County Division I West concert on March 13 at Half Hollow Hills High School East.

Stephen Coleman was chosen for the SCMEA All-County Band, Keira Ann Tantillo for the SCMEA All-County Orchestra, and Abbey Lacy and Marisa Triolo were selected for the SCMEA All-County Chorus. The students worked hard to prepare for the concert during three rehearsals at Walt Whitman High School in Huntington.

“Congratulations to all four students chosen to perform at SCMEA,” said music teacher Jaime DeMaria. “The JFK music staff is so very proud of them.”
