East Hampton High School Student Shines at County Performance

Yori Johnson was the only East Hampton student chosen for the select group.

An East Hampton High School senior gave a rousing performance earlier this month, and we wanted to share it with East Hampton Patch readers

Yori Johnson, of Springs, is the only East Hampton High School student selected for the very select All County Vocal Jazz Ensemble, which performed for the Suffolk County Music Educators Association "Day of Jazz" festival at Sayville High School on Feb. 2.

Next, the ensemble is heading to Albany in March for another performance. We hear you can catch Yori perform in "South Pacific" at the high school next month, so stay tuned to more information about that show.

Check out the clip above from the performance.

Love Yori's voice? Tell us in the comments.

Awards for singing are nice...now, how are EHHS math and science awards coming along? Do we have shining examples of teaching that inspires our youth in the sciences and industry? Everyone wants to be a basketball/football/singing star but few make it, so let's prepare our children for the future.

Give praise where praise is due. One thing had nothing you do with another. Congratulations to Yori Johnson for a job well done!!!

Rave reviews for Yori's singing, AND the conductor's dancing.

Usually you will find that students who are disciplined enough to work hard in music, art, yes and sports tend to be the best students. The Patch does recognize outstanding talents by all students, academic or extra curriculum.
