Musicians perform at NYS Band Director's Symposium
Congratulations to High School musicians Genevieve Picciano and Max McCarthy on their selection to perform at the New York State Band Directors Association (NYSBDA) Symposium held March 3 to 5 in Liverpool, NY.
Genevieve and Max were among the most elite and accomplished musicians to perform in their respective concerts on March 5.
Genevieve was selected to play the euphonium in the High School Honor Concert Band. She was chosen based on the submission of a nomination form, along with her score on the NYSSMA level solo she performed last year. Out of the approximately 400 students who apply to participate, only 115 student musicians are chosen to perform.
Max was selected to be guitarist in the High School Honor Jazz Ensemble. He was the only musician to play that instrument in the 18-member group. A committee made up of NYSBDA board members chooses the members of the ensemble based on submitted applications, resumes and NYSSMA solo scores.
