Eight students from both the elementary school and middle school showcased their exceptional talents at the Long Island String Festival Association concert on Jan. 28 at Northport High School.

Fifth-graders Caitlin Dickhuth, Jinah Kwak and Jack Snyder, sixth-graders Gavin Onghai, Kay Ranjbar, Andrew Schretzmayer and Nicholas Smirnov, and seventh-grader Alexa Ayotte were selected to perform in the Intermediate Long Island String Festival.

These students were selected for this honor along with others from across Suffolk County on a competitive basis with New York State School Music Association scores as the main criteria along with teacher recommendations.

“On behalf of the Port Jefferson School District, we congratulate all these accomplished musicians,” said Director of Music and Fine Arts Dr. Michael Caravello.
