Port Jefferson Hosts County Music Festival


Earl L. Vandermeulen High School was the site of the recent Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association’s Division 1 East All-County Festival.

More than 400 Suffolk County music students in grades 5 and 6 participated in the festival, performing in band, chorus and orchestra. During the event, Port Jefferson music faculty and student volunteers from the Tri-M Music Honor Society assisted with rehearsals, auditions, ticket/food sales and guiding visitors through the building.

“We congratulate our students, music teachers, custodial and security staff for helping to make a memorable music experience for so many of our county musicians and teachers,” said Dr. Michael Caravello, the district’s director of music and fine arts.
