South Huntington Duo Honored in Albany

Senator Owen H. Johnson welcomed talented musicians from several high schools across Suffolk County to the Empire State Plaza in Albany recently. The students performed with the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association’s (SCMEA) All-County Instrumental and Vocal Ensembles. South Huntington is proud that two of their musicians were part of the performance. Certificates of merit were presented to John Aiken, Alt. Trumpet, and Kenneth O’Neil, second trombone. The two musicians performed as part of “Music in Our Schools Month,” sponsored by the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA).
