DOVER — Dover High School Senior Matthew Lombardi was honored as Mayo Performing Arts Center’s January 2024 Music Students of the Month – Outstanding Percussionists — before the Thursday, January 18 performance by Drumline Live.

Other students from Chatham, Randolph, Kinnelon, Mendham, Florham Park, Morristown, Parsippany, and Roxbury, were also honored.

Students were nominated by their teachers and were chosen by the Theatre’s Education Department based on their commitment to excellence in the performing arts. The students were honored on stage before the concert. 

The Theatre will honor a group of students every month throughout the season and invites area teachers to nominate students for this honor.

The 2023-2024 Music Student of the Month program is supported by The Walter F. and Alice Gorham Foundation, Inc.

Matthew Lombardi a senior at Dover High School was nominated by Dan Vasquez.

Matty is an excellent student and dedicated percussionist. He has started writing his own percussion cadences and organized extra practices for the drummers to learn them. The Drumline this year created a new piece of music just to play for the pep rally. The section works harder than anyone else in the band and Matty is such a huge part of that. He inspires others around him to do better and I think he deserves to be acknowledged for his dedication and commitment.
