High School Musicians Devote a Day to Tuba

High School Musicians Devote a Day to Tuba  thumbnail143698
A trio of musicians from Amityville Memorial High School joined their peers from across Suffolk County at Day of Tuba, an annual exhibition that provides opportunities for students to learn from professionals and each other, and to hone their music skills. 

High school band members Christina Cross, Brandon Dennis and Scott Friske were among more than 200 students at the event, hosted by the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association. They participated in music workshops at Central Islip High School in early November. One of the highlights was attending a performance by guest artist, Lauren Veronie Curran, euphonium virtuoso from the U.S. Army Field Band.

Christina, Brandon and Scott shared their musical talents as members of a mass tuba ensemble as the evening culminated with a student performance. Amityville band director Jolene Maccarone accompanied the three students at Day of Tuba.
