The Valley Stream Central High School District is pleased to announce its 60th annual District Music Scholarship Festival on Friday, March 17 at 8 PM at Central High School’s Keller Auditorium.

The concert will feature the District Orchestra, under the direction of North High School’s Ms. Rebecca Hayden; the District Chorus, led by Ms. Amy Neuner of Central High School; and District Concert Band conducted by Mr. Douglas Coleman, also of Central High School. Each ensemble has prepared an impressive program of classic pieces, popular favorites, and new and challenging music.

The event will also include the announcement and awarding of three scholarships to graduating seniors, one from each of the district’s senior high schools.

The Valley Stream PTA and PTSA Council co-sponsor this annual celebration of music in conjunction with the district’s music department. Tickets cost $10 and can be purchased at the door or from a VSCHSD music teacher through participating students. Proceeds will go towards the scholarships, each of which is among the largest awarded by the district annually.
