The All-Eastern rehearsals and performances will take place from April 13-16, 2023. 

“This is an incredible accomplishment,” music teacher Amy Schecher said. “Vivian is a very talented young trombonist and an excellent student. She continues to impress me with her dedication to her academics, music and athletics. I’m sure she will make Rocky Point proud at this weekend’s All-State festival and the All-Eastern Festival in April.”

The Rocky Point School District is pleased to announce that eight Rocky Point High School students were selected to the Suffolk Chapter of the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education High School All-County Festival. To be selected for NYSCAME All-County, juniors and seniors must receive the highest ratings in Suffolk County at the New York State School Music Association Evaluation Festival. Once selected, students participated in three intensive rehearsal sessions at Connetquot High School, culminating with a concert at Half Hollow Hills East High School on Nov. 18. The following students were selected to a NYSCAME All-County ensemble and represented the Rocky Point High School Music Department:

Jordan Chirivas and Elyse Nadeau were selected for the Treble Chorus; Jessica Downer, Alexandria Kipp, Adam Olszewski, Renee Ortiz and Manny Watkis were selected for the mixed chorus and Vivian Dorr was selected for the full orchestra on trombone.

All-County students are selected in September and have the challenging task of learning and preparing 30-45 minutes of music prior to attending their ensemble rehearsals in November. They prepared the music with their music teachers Ms. Jessica Spitz and Ms. Amy Schecher.

“I feel incredibly honored to have these students in the Rocky Point Chorus Room,” Ms. Spitz said. “They are not only talented musicians but they will do anything and everything to support other singers in the chorus. They are incredibly deserving of this recognition. I am extremely proud of their achievements and their dedication to our music program.”

Rocky Point Music Department chairpersons Mr. Craig Knapp and Ms. Schecher added, “We are very proud of these students and their accomplishments. The dedication our students possess toward the arts is astounding. We are so pleased and grateful for their hard work and success.”

“This is fantastic,” Rocky Point High School Principal Jonathan Hart said. “Most do not know of the hard work and sacrifice our student-musicians put forth to achieve such success. They are also inspired and supported by the amazing music teachers here at Rocky Point. I am consistently impressed with our theater/arts/music program as we are sending students to these All-County performances each year. I am extremely proud of these students and grateful for our performing arts teachers!”
