The Amityville Memorial High School Jazz Ensemble continued an annual tradition by honoring the memory of the late Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a performance at the Bethel AME Church in Copiague on Dr. King’s birthday (observed).

Led by Jazz Ensemble director Brian Carter, the group performed two numbers that had churchgoers on their feet! Mr. Carter also accepted a check for $1,000 donated by the church to be used for the benefit of the Amityville student-musicians. Amityville School District officials, including several Board of Education members, were also in attendance.

The Copiague High School Madrigal Choir also performed and received a check for $1,000 from the church for their program as well.
