SCMEA (Suffolk County Music Educator's Association) had their All-County music festivals for grades 5-10 recently. SCMEA All-County is divided into 3 divisions. Division I is 5th and 6th grade. Division II is 7th and 8th grade and Division III is 9th and 10th graders. All concerts were held last weekend (over 2 days) at Central Islip High School.
Eastport South Manor had wonderful representation at all levels.
In Division I we had 33 students selected for band, chorus and orchestra. Division II had 15 students selected for band, chorus and orchestra. And Division III had 19 students selected for band, chorus and orchestra.
There is a Division IV for 11th and 12th graders, but is is not referred to as Division IV. It is co-sponsored by the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education (NYSCAME) Suffolk County Chapter and is held in November, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
