During the first weekend of November, over 200 seventh- through ninth-grade students from Broome, Cayuga, Cortland, Onondaga, Seneca, Tompkins, and Tioga counties joined together to perform in the Junior High Area All-State Festival at Fayetteville-Manlius High School in Manlius, NY.
Three U-E student musicians were selected to perform. Eamonn Hubert (orchestra), Ramen Holt (chorus), and Annikah Shabazz (band) were selected from a process that started last spring. First, being adjudicated with a NYSSMA solo, followed by a teacher recommendation, and then a selection committee. With only a few hours of rehearsal, these students were part of an outstanding ensemble that gave a wonderful performance. Congratulations! #TigerPride
