The Genesee/Wyoming Music Educators announce that 38 local students will be performing at three music festivals in November and December.
Miranda Graham (chorus-alto) from Le Roy has been accepted to Conference All State that will be held in early December. This is the highest choral honor for vocalists in New York. Miranda was chosen from a large field of students due to her high score at State Solo Festival last spring. Dillon Hirsch (saxophone) from Elba was chosen as an alternate.
Thirty-six other students were chosen to represent their schools at Area All State, which is a group of select singers from nine surrounding counties. All students had to audition at a state solo festival held late last spring.
These festivals will take place for seventh- through ninth-graders (jr. high
orchestra/chorus/band) Nov. 2-3, and for 10th-12th-graders (sr. high orchestra/chorus/band) Nov. 16-17.
