Each spring, thousands of students audition a New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) level 6 solo for a rating from a certified judge. The audition results are forwarded to a statewide selection committee and a proficiency list is generated, from which students are selected for All-State participation. The Katonah-Lewisboro School District was proud to send Rachel Rodgers, Benjamin Tisherman and Nicholas Tisherman to this year’s All-State festival. Rachel performed on flute, Benjamin performed on clarinet and Nick performed on oboe, all with the Symphonic Orchestra.
The 76th NYSSMA All-State Annual Winter Conference was held in Rochester, New York on December 1st through December 4th, 2011. Nearly 900 student musicians rehearsed day and night, which culminated in three wonderful performances at the historic Eastman Theater. Congratulations to Rachel, Benjy and Nick on this outstanding accomplishment!
