Students from the Riverhead High School Chamber Choir, Chamber Orchestra, and Jazz Ensemble took home five awards, including three first place trophies, during a music competition held in Hershey, Pa. on Saturday.
The annual Music in the Parks festival at Hershey Park featured 12 schools competing by performing in front of a panel of judges.
All three music groups won first place, with the Chamber Choir and the Chamber Orchestra earning a “superior” rating from the judges. The Chamber Choir also went on to win the Best Overall High School Choir award in the competition.
Sean Klopfer, a guitarist in the jazz band, also won an award for “outstanding soloist” in the competition.
