Congratulations to our seven Ichabod Crane High School students selected to attend the NYSSMA Area All-State Festival on November 22-23 at Hudson High School in Hudson, N.Y.
Students representing Ichabod Crane at the Area All-State Festival were: Victoria Slade (choir), Bridget Duso (choir), Miah Nooney (choir), Olivia Oligny-Leggett (choir), Anna O’Shea (choir), Alex Regan (concert band) and Meredith Buono (concert band).
To be in the Festival, each student was required to prepare and perform a solo for a New York State Schools Music Association (NYSSMA) adjudicator and sight-read a short melody. The highest-scoring students in Dutchess, Putnam & Columbia Counties were then selected to participate in the Festival this past weekend.
Students rehearsed throughout Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, culminating in a Saturday afternoon concert under the direction of conductors from around New York State and beyond.
