Three high school students have been chosen to perform in the New York State School Music Association’s All-State ensembles at the Annual Winter Conference after being recognized by NYSSMA for music excellence. The conference will be held in Rochester from Nov. 29 through Dec. 2. 

The three musicians selected are Will Katartzis, voice, A.J. Vita, guitar, and Soham Maiti, double bass. 

More than 6,500 sophomores and juniors within the state performed in NYSSMA solo evaluation festivals last spring with the hopes of being selected for All-State. Students who received a score between 98 and 100 after being evaluated by a NYSSMA All-State judge on their solo performance would qualify.

The district commends Will, A.J. and Soham on their accomplishments and selections.
