Music Program a Gold Standard

Music Program a Gold Standard

As a testament to its remarkable ensembles, dedicated faculty, connection to K-12 Arts Standards, student-led groups, special events and strong support from the Board of Education and the community, the music program at the high school was recognized as a Gold Music Program of Excellence by the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.

This year is the first year the LIMHF has honored high school music programs, and FHS is one of just seven high schools across Long Island to receive this distinction. Freeport will be recognized with a banner to commemorate the honor at a special ceremony at Northport High School, where the high school’s Select Chorale will also have the opportunity to showcase its talents in a 5-10 minute performance.

FHS achieved Gold for various reasons cited by the LIMHF, including the the school’s special integrated events for Peace and Black History Month, its unique Mariachi-based program, summer music program, and recent renovation of the Performing Arts Center at FHS.

The recognition ceremony will be held on April 3.
