Nine students in the Riverhead Central School District were selected by the New York State Band Directors Association to perform with, or serve as alternates for, the 2019 New York State Band Directors Association Honor Bands.
The application process includes their scores from the New York State School Music Association Solo Evaluation Festival and their music teachers’ recommendations.
A committee of band directors chose Riverhead High School band students Quinn Bailey, Lydia Bilsk, Olivia Bozuhoski, Lauren Enos, Ainsley Hipp and Brady Wells from a pool of more than 400 applicants. High school students Laura Allen and Riley Wendt were named as alternates.
Bryan Enos, a Riverhead Middle School student, was chosen from an applicant pool of approximately 250 students. He is one of 106 students selected to perform with the NYSBDA Middle School Honor Concert Band.
The district extends its congratulations to each of these student-musicians.
