Commack High School Students NYSSMA Bound
Nine Commack High School instrumental and vocal musicians were selected to participate in the 2012 New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) All-State Winter Conference. The selection of these talented students followed competitive auditions involving thousands of music students from throughout New York State. During a lengthy and rigorous selection process that took place during the summer, the State’s finest musicians were chosen to perform in various All-State ensembles. The concerts will take place in the Eastman Theater located in Rochester, New York, in early December.
“It is quite an honor to be selected to perform in an All-State ensemble,” stated Paul R. Infante, Commack’s Director of Fine and Applied Arts. “Each of these musicians possesses exceptional talent and we are proud to have them represent Commack.”
