Albany High musicians play Carnegie Hall

ALBANY, N.Y. (June 6, 2017) -- It’s a sure sign of success and talent when a musician plays Carnegie Hall.

 

And three Albany High School musicians did just that on Sunday in an Empire State Youth Orchestra performance at the famous New York City concert hall.

 

The students, starting at left in the photo, are junior Mara Strich, who plays flute and piccolo, sophomore Elli Sol Strich, who plays French horn, and junior Sofia Fasullo, who plays clarinet and bass clarinet.

 

“Performing at such a premier venue is certainly not something that happens every day and we in the music department are so proud of what they have accomplished,” said Albany High teacher John Halvorsen, director of the Wind Ensemble.

 

The Empire State Youth Orchestra is an ensemble of classical musical performing groups that provides musically advanced students with an opportunity to perform with other talented musicians. The three Albany High students are members of the most advanced group, the Youth Orchestra, considered to be one of the premiere youth orchestras in the country.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
