Four music students from the Herricks Public Schools’ Searingtown School participated in the 17th annual PEAK Festival  Nov. 16. As PEAK stands for parents, educators, and kids, the young musicians and their parents were joined by teachers.

This music festival prepares fourth-grade musicians for future All-County participation through a variety of workshops offered throughout the day. The last hour of each year’s event features a concert that showcases the different sessions and experiences.

The Herricks students were among more than 300 Nassau County fourth-graders who participated in this opportunity, which was held at Freeport High School and is run by the Nassau Music Educators Association All-County Classroom Music Division.
