Earlier this year, SCMEA launched the All-County A Cappella Ensemble, a
pilot program for the organization. Students throughout Suffolk County
auditioned for a panel of judges to be selected for the first All-County
A Cappella ensemble in New York State.
Of the 22 students selected for this premiere ensemble, two were
Elwood-John H. Glenn High School juniors: Makenzy Chaikin, an alto, and
Meghan Rivardo, a soprano.
After intensive rehearsals, the ensemble put on an incredible
performance at Connetquot High School on May 26th. In addition, high
school a cappella groups from all over Suffolk County also performed,
including Elwood-John H. Glenn’s own Acappelwood.
