VSCHSD Holds 66th Annual Music Scholarship Festival at Carnegie Hall

April 15, 2024

The Valley Stream Central High School District held its 66th Annual Music Scholarship Festival on April 4. This year’s festival included a special twist: For the first time ever, this long-running VSCHSD tradition was held at Carnegie Hall.

One of the most prestigious stages in the world played host to members of our orchestra, chorus, band and performing arts group, much to the delight of the parents, guardians and Central High School District staff who had travelled to New York City to witness this extra special event.

Ticket sales from the festival raised funds for a music scholarship that goes to a graduating senior from each of the District’s three high schools. This year, the scholarship recipients were Tinatin Narimanidze from Central High School, Layla Rutledge from North High School, and Christian Crawford from South High School.

“This was a landmark year for this annual Valley Stream Central High School District tradition, and it could not have been more special, with an incredible show by our student musicians, singers and thespians,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Wayne Loper. “None of it would have been possible without the support of our Valley Stream community, and the enthusiastic dedication of our talented music instructors. Thank you for making this memorable experience possible.”
