Six MWHS student musicians have been named as part of the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) 2021-2022 All-State festival.

Congratulations to the following musicians who have earned this prestigious honor :

James Dawson, Bass I, Alternate

Jordan Subocz, Double Bass, Alternate

Stephanie Peng, Violin, Symphony Orchestra

Amara Leitner, Oboe, Alternate

Alex Liu, Trombone, Alternate

Ethan Hala, French horn, Alternate

NYSSMA will host a reduced festival in December. Each year, thousands of student musicians in New York State compete for an opportunity to be selected for the NYSSMA Conference All-State Music ensembles.

Admission to these highly selective groups is based upon the score received the previous spring during the NYSSMA Solo Evaluation Festival, where each student performed before a certified adjudicator who carefully evaluated every aspect of their performance.

A special thank you to M-W teachers, Lauren Byrne, David Crone and Richard Regan, who helped prepare these students for this honor.
