Student Musicians Attend Day of Horn

Six French horn students recently represented the district in the twelfth Annual Suffolk Music Educators’ Association (SCMEA) “Day of Horn” at Northport High School.

Eli Antonison, Gavin Richardt and Aidan Smith from Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School, Danielle Barber and Ella Lau from Oldfield Middle School and Audrey Lenahan from Harborfields High School participated in the event.

The students were among French horn players from across Suffolk County that took part in the day. In addition to a massed horn band and an All Star student ensemble, students were treated to a workshop by esteemed New York City Broadway and freelance horn player Eric Davis.

Music faculty member Cathy Ferraro was on hand to work with the six students and take part in the musical festivities.

“It was wonderful to see Horn players at all levels come together to celebrate the instrument," she said.
