JFK Recorder Band Prepares for SCMEA Fest

The John F. Kennedy fifth-grade recorder band has been working diligently with band director Gregg Romano to prepare for the 46th annual Eugene Reichenthal Recorder Festival. The festival, hosted by the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association, will take place on March 15 at Brentwood High School’s Sonderling Center, culminating in a 3 p.m. concert in which all 14 young student-musicians from JFK will participate. This is the third consecutive year in which the school’s recorder ensemble has attended the SCMEA festival.
