Huntington High School’s student musicians are all hoping for a spectacular year of personal growth and exceptional individual and group performances. Inside the building’s walls are some of the most outstanding young talents on Long Island, if not the state and nation.
Huntington’s music program is steeped in tradition. It started to take shape in the 1920s and came into much sharper focus in the 1930s, when the Blue Devil band was created by James Cloyd Doty. The 1950s and 1960s saw explosive growth in the program, which steadily gained a nationwide reputation for its comprehensive nature and magnificent musicians and vocalists. A chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society was added in the 1990s.
The current year’s student leadership for the high school’s music groups includes:
Tri-M Music Honor Society: Lauren Holly (president), Matthew Levinson (vice president), Allison Quinn (treasurer), Lauren Landolfi (secretary) and Samuel James (historian).
Blue Devil Marching Band: Nadeera Ali, Emma Hannigan and Isabella Lima are the drum majors. Rachel Morina is the field major.
