Prodell Middle School string students perform at SCMEA Festival

Five Middle School string musicians were selected to participate in the Suffolk County Music Educators Association Festival recently held at Mount Sinai High School.

After two days of rehearsals, the students, eighth-grader Natalie Acker (bass), seventh-graders Shiqi Cheng (viola) and Sean Dany (violin), and sixth-graders Kathryn Winters and Alex Zhang (violins) performed a concert with other selected students from throughout Suffolk County.

“We are all so proud of the hard work each of these students put in to their music studies,” said music teacher Frederick Volz. “They deserve the honor for all of their efforts and talents.”

The students were selected based on New York State School Music Association scores and Volz’ recommendations.
