Congratulations to the following students for being accpeted to the Area All-State Music Festival:
The New York State School Music Association is hosting the Zone 7 Area All-State Music Festival in Saratoga Springs, NY on Nov. 21 and 22 at the Saratoga Springs High School.
Over fifty high schools from the greater capital region will be represented as students perform in a select band, chorus, orchestra and jazz ensemble. Students selected to Area All-State are some of the finest musicians in their school and all have received very high solo performance scores at recent NYSSMA Solo and Ensemble festivals.
Acceptance to Area All-State is based primarily on NYSSMA Solo scores and teacher recommendation. Students in these select ensembles will spend four hours on Friday, Nov. 21 and another four hours on Saturday, Nov. 22 as they work under the guidance of some of the most renown guest conducts from the Northeast region of the country.
The weekend of music making will culminate in a concert at 2 p.m. in the Saratoga Springs High School Auditorium where all four ensembles will perform challenging music prepared during the festival.
Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and $3 for
