The district is pleased to announce that Elwood-John H. Glenn High School juniors Jason Mueller and Sean Wilkinson have recently been selected as members of the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association 2017 All-County High School Percussion Ensemble!

Students from across Suffolk County auditioned to be a part of this prestigious group of musicians. Jason and Sean are two of the top 15 students selected to join the Ensemble. They will rehearse with the All-County Percussion Ensemble in the upcoming weeks leading up to a concert on Feb. 10 at Mount Sinai High School.

"Their percussion skills have skyrocketed over the past 3 years and I am so very proud to be a part of their music education," said band director Vickie Henson. "These are incredible young men who in addition to their musical contributions to our department, make service to others a priority in their daily lives. They are shining examples of the Elwood Community."

In addition, Jason and Sean are currently preparing NYSSMA solos and are members of the John Glenn Symphonic Band, Honors Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble and Marching Band. Jason is also a member of Concert Choir and Acapelwood, the high school’s acapella group.
