Students Selected for NYSSMA All-State

Seven students from the District have been recognized by the New York State School Music Association for their outstanding musical talents and chosen to perform in the All-State Festival at NYSSMA’s 81st Annual Winter Conference from Dec. 1-4. An additional six East Meadow High School students were named alternates.
More than 6,500 sophomores and juniors in New York State performed in NYSSMA solo evaluation festivals last spring in the hopes of being selected for All-State. To qualify, students had to receive a score between 98 and 100 on their solo performance, judged by a NYSSMA All-State adjucator.
From W.T. Clarke High School, Alby Joseph will perform the violoncello in the symphony orchestra, Juan Lucas Orozco, tenor II in the mixed choir and Emily Shaiman, jazz soprano in the vocal jazz ensemble.
From East Meadow High School, Kevin Martin has been selected to perform double bass in the string orchestra, Jolie Rebelo, violin for the symphony orchestra, Alissa Rojas, alto I for the mixed choir and Won Son, contrabass clarinet for the symphonic band.
The district commends these exceptionally talented students for their passion and dedication to music.
