PEAK Performance

Six fourth-grade students at Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School were selected to participate in the seventh annual Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association’s Parents, Educators and Kids Festival held at Northport High School.

Selected by teacher recommendations, students Ayden Catron, Margaret Catron, Alanna Gayle, Madeline Shingleton, Caylen Williams and Z’Nya Williams joined other fourth-graders from across Suffolk County to attend this unique music learning experience. During the event, students participated in three 45-minute workshops based on diverse music and dance styles including African drumming, singing games, folk dance, musical theater and improvisation.

To conclude the event, students were called to the stage by their clinician to perform and share what they learned.
