On Oct. 25, HHS Tri-M Honor ensembles dedicated their first concert of the school year to the Farmingdale Music Department, whose members are still reeling from the tragic loss of their beloved band director Gina Pellettiere.
The Herricks High School Chamber Choir, Chamber Orchestra and Wind Ensemble performed poignant compositions that showcased the students' musical precision and expertise along with their steadfast solidarity and hope for healing with their fellow musicians.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to provide scholarships for Farmingdale students to attend summer band camp. Herricks Director of Fine and Performing Arts Anissa Arnold personally delivered the donation on behalf of the students to Farmingdale School District Director of Fine and Performing Arts Greg Warnokowski.
The district is proud of our students who not only showed off their musical talent, but more importantly, displayed their generous spirit filled with empathy and compassion for our neighbors in need.
