Albert G. Prodell Middle School music teacher Mr. John Samonte served as a choral conductor for the Hampton Music Educators’ Association 2023 Middle School Festival. The event annually unites students in grades 6-8 from all over the south fork of Long Island for several rehearsals and a final performance of music.

Mr. Samonte was lauded for his preparation and attention to detail with the students and for choosing a repertoire that was interesting, rigorous and appropriate for students at the middle school grade level. “Mr. Samonte embodies professionalism, dedication to his craft and a high level of artistry matched only by his patience and kindness,” Brett Frederick, the association’s president, said. “Our students will surely remember their experience for many years.”
