Park Avenue Musicians Make an Impression

Park Avenue Student Musicians
Young musicians from Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School recently took part in a pair of events hosted by the Suffolk County Music Educators Association.

Three fourth-grade students participated in SCMEA’s PEAK Music Festival at Northport High School. Krystal Gomez, Deanna Murray and Madisyn Parachico were chosen based on the recommendation of their music teacher, Megan Ashe. They were able to take part in various music learning experiences such as world drumming, chorus, folk dancing, recorder, musical theater and ukulele throughout the day with their parents. 

Sixth-grader Katya Ramos-Rojas attended the SCMEA Day of Tuba and Euphonium at Central Islip High School. She was selected for the performance, in which she played the baritone tuba, by her band teacher, Jolene Maccarone. 

“Congratulations to all of these students and their music teachers on these outstanding achievements,” said Dr. Fran Fernandez, director of fine arts.
