We are pleased to announce that five of our high school students were accepted into the NYSSMA Zone 3 Area All-State Festival. This is a highly competitive process and each student had to audition to be accepted into their respective ensembles.

The following students have been accepted into Area All-State Chorus: Brenden Samsel (Tenor 1), Jonathan Hozempa (Bass 1), Jacob Beadle (Tenor 1) and Connor Little (Tenor 2 Alternate). Maddox Thornton will play the trombone in the Area All-State Band.

The group will head to Ithaca College in February to participate in the festival. Congratulations to all who made Area All-State this year!
