Herricks Musicians Perform in Trills and Thrills

Herricks Musicians Perform in Trills and Thrills

On May 10, three ensembles from the Herricks High School Music Department traveled to New Jersey to participate in the Trills and Thrills festival. The Ninth-Grade Band, Ninth-Grade Orchestra and Ninth-Grade Chorus performed under the direction of Scott Stickley, Catherine Fish and Louise O'Hanlon, respectively. They played challenging concert programs for a panel of adjudicators that offered comments and performance evaluations. All of the Herricks ensembles received superior ratings – the highest possible – and positive feedback from the adjudicators. The students spent the rest of the day at Six Flags Great Adventure celebrating their success, which resulted from dedication and practice.
