Riverhead High School junior Lauren Enos has earned multiple recognitions from prestigious music organizations.

Enos, who plays the clarinet, was selected to perform in the New York State School Music Association All-State Music Festival as a first clarinetist in the symphony orchestra and a bass clarinetist in the wind ensemble. She was chosen based on her outstanding performance at the NYSSMA Solo Evaluation Festival last spring.

Enos was also recently named principal clarinetist for the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra and the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education’s All-County Music Festival. Additionally, she will be performing as first clarinetist for the Hampton Music Educators Association.

For Enos, the clarinet is a large part of her life. She practices daily and performs with her school’s band and community groups. She also takes private lessons with Anton Rist, principal clarinetist of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. During the summer, she attended the Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan, where she advanced her skills as a member of the wind ensemble. She has been invited to attend the camp again in summer 2020.
