On Saturday, November 18th, twelve students from the Farmingdale School District participated in this year's P.E.A.K. Festival at Freeport High School. The P.E.A.K. Festival is the fourth-grade prelude to the Division 1 All County Music Festivals. P.E.A.K. provides excellent workshops focusing on choral singing, music concepts, All County level ensemble experience, skills, and techniques facilitated by a dedicated and talented staff of music professionals. Saltzman East Memorial music teacher Abigail Hesselton chaired the event with two other Nassau County teachers. She worked with the clinicians and volunteers behind the scenes to ensure the festival ran smoothly. Our fourth-grade students, accompanied by Mrs. Irene Smykowski from Saltzman East Memorial and Ms. Deanna Cupolo from Northside and Woodward Parkway, got to play ukuleles, participate in a musical escape room, learn about Australian Rhythm Sticks, and many other workshops! The day ended with a performance of every student and parent showcasing what they learned during the day. A big applause to these fourth-grade students, teachers, and parents on a fun and musical day!
