Three students at North Babylon High School have been selected for participation in the New York State School Music Association All-State Music Festival based upon their performance at last year’s NYSSMA Solo Festival. To congratulate the students for their hard work, the Board of Education and administration honored Carolyn Mistretta (soprano II, women’s chorus), Jaclyn Schoelermann (soprano II, women’s chorus) and Kevin White (electric bass, jazz ensemble) at the Sept. 19 Board meeting. The Board also recognized Lily LaFleur, Alyssa Loftus and Kelly Sisson on their selection as alternates for the festival.

The New York All-State bands, choruses, orchestras and jazz ensembles are honors groups comprised of the top students from school music departments across the state. The eight groups will be directed by renowned guest conductors and perform in one of three concerts at the Eastman Theater during the NYSSMA Winter Conference on Dec. 7 and 8.
