IHS Students Selected for NYSSMA All-State Conference

Fourteen students from Ithaca High School have been selected to participate in the 84th Annual New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Winter Conference, December 5-8 in Rochester, N.Y.

More than 6,500 sophomores and juniors auditioned for this honor at solo and ensemble festivals held across New York State last spring. Of those, approximately 900 were ultimately placed on a statewide master proficiency list and assigned to one of the eight All-State Ensembles that will perform at the NYSSMA Winter Conference.

Additionally, an appropriate number of alternates were selected from the master proficiency list for each instrument and voice part, including eight students from IHS. These alternates may be chosen to fill any openings in the ensemble performances.
