HS Recognition Program Video Gallery

The Long Island Music Hall of Fame is proud to announce the winners of its fifth annual High School Music Department Recognition Program. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 awards had to be canceled. In 2021, the awards shifted to a virtual application process. For the first time, video entries were accepted that showcased the amazing music that schools created under unbelievably difficult conditions and pandemic restrictions.

Both the LIMHoF Education committee and a panel of music educators reviewed the videos that were submitted from each school. As a result, 12 Long Island high school music programs were awarded recognition wins and celebrated via video format. For the first time in its history, music performance videos from each applicant have been posted here on the LIMHoF website.
