Congratulations to the 16 Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake band students who were selected to perform at the SWCMEA All-County Band Festival at Queensbury High School on Saturday, Oct. 25.
Students were selected based on their scores from the NYSSMA solo festival held last spring. The students spent two days working with musicians from the 20 member SWMEA schools culminating in the Festival concert. Distinguished guest conductors from the Northeastern New York region were invited to work with the three bands for this event.
The BH-BL students who were selected were Sam Hatfield and Rebecca Landry from 6/7 band; Adam Boucher, Abigail Evans, Brandon Gohl, Jessica Landry, Anna LeClair, Mark Pietrowski, Camille Sirianni and Brandon So from 8/9 band; and Matthew Darling, Aubrey Dunn, Isaiah Evans, Luke LeBel, Michael Read and Steven Spiewak from 10-12 band.
