The high school presented its 2020 winter concert virtually this year, sharing the student-musicians’ talent and hard work with the community via YouTube and social media. The concert was sponsored by the local East Islip Music and Arts Program Support organization.

The concert band, directed by Christopher Neske, performed Henry Fillmore’s “His Honor”; the treble choir, directed by Bethany Affelt, performed Mark Miller’s “I Believe”; the concert choir, directed by Patricia Bryan, performed Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s “Once Upon a December” from “Anastasia”; the string orchestra, directed by Giovanna Ruggiero, performed the traditional holiday favorite “Deck the Halls”; and the honors choir, directed by Affelt, performed Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne’s “Do You Hear What I Hear.” Closing out the concert was the symphony orchestra – composed of the honors wind ensemble, directed by Neske, and the honors strings, directed by Ruggiero – performing Leroy Anderson’s classic “Sleigh Ride.”

“We would like to thank the East Islip community and school administration for their continued support during these unprecedented times,” said Ruggiero. “Thank you so much and we hope you enjoy.”
