BEDFORD, N. Y. -- Nine Fox Lane High School musicians were selected to participate in the New York All-State Music Ensembles on Dec. 5 and Dec. 6 at the Eastman Theatre in Rochester.
The students were picked from thousands of New York students vying for spots in the ensemble. Selection was based on individual ratings earned in the New York State School Music Association Solo Festival this past spring, school officials said.
Performing with the All-State Symphony Orchestra will be 12th-grade violinist Zoe Dweck. Singing in the All-State Mixed Chorus will be Dillon Firestein, a 12th-grade tenor, Lidya Ozcelik, an 11th-grade alto and Leah Sperber, a 12th-grade alto.
Soprano Claudia Reino, a 12th-grader and Haley Siconolfi, a 12th-grader also will perform with the All-State Women’s Chorus. Performing with the All-State Vocal Jazz Ensemble are Joelle Sandak, a 12th-grade soprano, Gianni Leone, a 12th-grade tenor and Marcello Carelli, an 11th-grade drummer who will round out the vocal jazz ensemble’s instrumental jazz trio.
These Bedford musicians perform in the Fox Lane High School music program under the direction of Nicole Peragine for orchestra, Edward Reisert for chorus and Paul Tooker for band.
