NIGHT 0F STRINGS - GRADES 5 - 12 ORCHESTRA FINALE
(June 3, 2014) On June 3rd, the Riverhead Music Department hosted its third annual “Night of Strings” Concert. Performers consisted of students from the beginning level in 5th grade to the more advanced string musicians in the 12th grade. The evening concluded with a performance of "Calypso Jam" performed by all 360 strings students. The night was a true representation of the pride and passion the students have for their talent and the growth they have achieved on their instrument. Outstanding performances were given by all three performing groups: Pulaski Street School's 5th & 6th Grade Orchestra, the Middle School Orchestra Grades 7-8, and the combined Grades 9-12 Orchestra. The Concertmaster was Matt Barnard, who plans to become a music educator.
