Several Hamilton Central high school music students participated in the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Area All-State Festival on Saturday, November 17th.
Because of the snowy weather, the usual Friday evening rehearsal was canceled. The groups met together for the first time on Saturday morning and performed an outstanding concert Saturday afternoon. This was truly an impressive feat, especially considering the difficulty of the pieces chosen by the guest conductors.
