Bravo! Albany High musicians chosen for festivals

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 17, 2017) – Eleven Albany High School virtuosos will represent their school on Nov. 18 at the Area All-State Music Festival of the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA).

 

The annual event features outstanding music students from high schools throughout the Capital Region performing in band, chorus, jazz band or orchestra. Students were selected based on scores they received at NYSSMA auditions last spring.

 

Performing at the Nov. 18 festival, to be held at Saratoga Springs High School at 2 p.m., will be: 

  • Robert Ackerman (chorus, tenor)

  • Richard Andrews (chorus, bass)

  • Logan Bennett (symphony orchestra, trumpet)

  • Reeve Churchill (symphonic band, French horn)

  • Sofia Fasullo (symphony orchestra, clarinet)

  • Anna Kennedy (symphony orchestra, piccolo)

  • Elizabeth O'Toole (symphonic band, flute)

  • Alexandra Sipos (chorus, soprano)

  • Elli Sol Strich (symphony orchestra, French horn)

  • Mara Strich (symphony orchestra, flute)

  • Fiona Streznewski (symphonic band, trombone)

 

Three of the students – Sofia Fasullo, Elli Sol Strich and Mara Strich – also were selected from among thousands statewide to perform in the highly selective Conference All-State Festival, which will be held on Dec. 2-3 at Kodak Hall in Rochester. The Strich sisters will play in the Conference All-State Symphonic Band and Fasullo will play in the All-State Symphony Orchestra.

Congratulations to all!
