The Valley Stream Central High School District is pleased to announce its 61st Annual District Music Scholarship Festival Concert at 8 PM on Friday, March 16th at Central High School’s Keller Auditorium. Ensembles slated to perform that evening are The District Music Festival Orchestra, Chorus, and Band. All groups were selected based on auditions of students in grades nine through twelve in all four of the Central High School District’s schools.

The conductors which rotate annually, are drawn from the district’s accomplished music faculty. This year the honors fall to Ms. Victoria Alaimo, Orchestra Director of Memorial; Ms. Rita Vella, Senior High Choral Director at South; and Ms. Melanee Bedell, Junior High Band Director at South. All three teachers have chosen challenging and interesting programs that guarantee to thrill and impress students and audience members alike. Ticket proceeds will go toward funding music scholarships for graduating seniors, one from each building, that are announced during the concert intermission. Check soon on the District website for details on how to purchase tickets, which are $12 and guarantee general admission.
