As a result of their musical talents and promise, four Rocky Point High School students have earned recognition on the regional and state level this fall. 

Seniors Grace Donofrio (Mixed Choir), Kyle Markland (Symphony Orchestra, Double Bass) and junior Josh Vogel (Mixed Choir) have been selected to perform at this year’s NYSSMA All-State Winter Conference Music Festival in Rochester, New York, from Nov. 30-Dec. 3. Kyle is the first Rocky Point student to be selected for an All-State orchestral ensemble.  

In addition, these students, along with senior Allen Liu (Orchestra, Violin), have been chosen as All-County student-musicians and will perform along the best in Suffolk County during the NYSCAME/SCMEA All-County Music Festival this November at Hauppauge High School. 

Selection for these prestigious festivals is based on students’ NYSSMA scores from the previous spring as well as teacher recommendations.
