High school freshman Melina Neofitos was recently honored with All-County selection to the Suffolk County Music Educators' Association Vocal Jazz Ensemble.
Neofitos will be singing soprano in the SCMEA Jazz Choir on Nov. 6 at East Islip High School. She prepared a vocal jazz NYSSMA solo last spring, was chosen to participate this fall and has been preparing the music diligently for several weeks. The small ensembles include musicians from grades 9-12 across Suffolk County with a special interest in jazz.
“Melina is a talented singer and an enthusiastic learner,” said teacher Rachel Nagle. “She will certainly enjoy and appreciate the experience this honor will bring.”
