GFHS Students Take Talents to Area-All State Music Festival

Students Selected to perform at NYSSMA Festival
GFHS selected to perform at this year’s NYSSMA Area All-State Festival

Earlier this school year, six Glens Falls High School students were selected to perform in three different ensembles at the New York State School Music Association’s (NYSSMA) Zone 7 Area-All State Festival.

After spending weeks to practice their challenging pieces of music at home and with their GFHS teachers, the students were able to rehearse with other highly accomplished student musicians for two days. Following the rehearsals, students had the opportunity to perform in a concert held at Saratoga Springs High School.

Students who performed during this year’s festival:

Clara Avery, symphonic orchestra

Brady Gross, symphonic band

Kendall Gross, symphonic orchestra

Ryan Healy, symphonic orchestra

Ava LaVine, mixed chorus

Sam Palmer, mixed chorus

Congratulations to all students who were selected to participate in this year’s festival!
