Congratulations to Emily West and Sam Battestin, who both successfully completed the four-day NYSSMA All-State conference and performances.
Emily performed in Alto II and Treble Chorus. Sam performed in Tenor I and Mixed Chorus.
Most students who achieve NYSSMA All-State have spent years working on their solo music; taking private lessons, participating in previous NYSSMA Solo festivals, performing in many concerts and rehearsing a LOT! Being selected for NYSSMA Conference All-State is a “crowning achievement” for a New York Public School music student.
Both students participate in the UEHS Choral program under the direction of Jim Gleason.
