The Valley Stream Central High School District is excited to invite the entire community to its inaugural Districtwide Marching Band Festival on Oct. 28. The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the new athletic field at Memorial Junior High School, 320 Fletcher Avenue. 

The festival will feature performances by the bands from Central, North and South High School, as well as Memorial Junior High School’s pep band. Central’s musicians, under the direction of Douglas Coleman, will play “the Hits of 1979” while North’s group will perform a compilation titled, “From the Earth to the Moon,” led by Todd Holly. South’s ensemble, conducted by Daniel Creegan, will spotlight a “Pirates of the Caribbean” soundtrack. 

All are welcome to bring a chair or find a seat in the bleachers for an afternoon of outstanding music! The raindate will be Oct. 29 at the same time and location. For more information, contact District Director of Fine and Performing Arts Dr. Adam Erdos at 516-561-4439 or
