The musical talents of Nassau County students continue to progress outside of the school year thanks to the district’s Summer Music Program at East Meadow High School.
Organized and coordinated by the district’s music department, the program invites students from grades 4-12 from the throughout the county to continue their musical education, increase their passion for the arts and socialize with fellow student-musicians.
Several courses were available at the start of the program based on each students’ grade level and experience. Courses included beginner instrumental, intermediate band and orchestra, advanced band and orchestra and advanced choral. The summer program began on July 1 and runs through August 2.
For the second straight year, the department encouraged student creativity by hosting Spirit Week during the week of July 15. Themes were celebrated each day including sports, crazy hat, super hero, school swag and music.
A series of concerts will be held on July 30, 31 and August 1 at 7 p.m., as well as on August 2 at 9 a.m. as a celebration of the program for the community. The concerts will be held at East Meadow High School.
