Recorder Festival

Ten fifth-grade students from Islip’s Commack Road Elementary School participated in the annual Eugene Reichenthal Recorder Festival held at Brentwood High School. The festival, which was sponsored by the Suffolk County Music Educators Association, took place on March 24. The CRES students were chosen based on excellence in recorder playing, as demonstrated during classroom lessons and informal performances with their teacher Michael Baur.
