To the editor:

Congratulations to all the students, music directors and participants in the “Sounds of the Season” that was televised during the holidays.

There was great music from all of the Suffolk schools and Smithfield High School. The students presenting during the VSO concert at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts was also a wonderful addition.

This would be a great Christmas concert performance at the Suffolk Center. Promoting and encouraging our young people in the art of music and performance while highlighting the dedicated work of the music departments at our schools is important.
