    Congratulations to the following students that were slected to participate (or as alternates) in one of the All-State Ensembles at the New York State School Music Association's Winter Conference in Rochester this December.  This is the highest honor a school musician can receive in the state of New York.  After participating in the NYSSMA solo/ensemble festival last Spring, these students were chosen as a result of preparing scales, sight reading, and performing a solo at the highest possible level.  They each received a perfect socre and were selected from thousands of students throughout the state to be a member/alternate for one of the NYSSMA All-State Ensemebles.  Congratulations to each one of these hard-working musicians and their teachers!
