ITHS band student chosen for NMEA All County Day of Percussion!
|Sophomore Matthew Sellitto, percussion student, was chosen
to participate in the Nassau Music Educators Association(NMEA)
All County Day of Percussion last April. Students from Nassau
County are chosen based on high NYSSMA festival scores from the
previous year, as well as teacher recommendation. It was held on
April 20th at Massapequa High School. The day featured a master
class with Frank Bellucci on Drumset, and the Jam Royal Steel
Drum Band, followed by a performance by the students in the All
County Percussion Ensemble. The day ends with a full performance
of everyone in attendance to celebrate percussion music.
Congratulations to Matthew Sellitto on an outstanding
performance with the NMEA All County Percussion Ensemble, and
thank you to Mr. Greg Warnokowski, HS band director, and Mr.
Jerry Noble, Percussion Artist in Residence, for their help to
facilitate this important event!
