Two students from East Hampton High School have been selected to participate in this year's NYSSMA All-State Ensembles. Wells Woolcott (center left) will sing tenor in the Mixed Chorus, and Anthony Genovesi (center right) will play jazz drum set in the Instrumental Jazz Ensemble.

In order to be nominated for All-State, students must first score a 98 or higher on a NYSSMA Level VI solo. Last Spring, over 6,500 students prepared for this level of adjudication, and over 2,400 were nominated for the All-State Ensembles. After careful consideration by the Selection Committee, approximately 900 students are selected to participate in the eight performing ensembles each year.

The All-State ensembles will perform at the NYSSMA Winter Conference, which will take place November 29-December 2 at the Rochester Convention Center. Under the direction of esteemed college professors, the students will rehearse extremely challenging music, and will perform it at the highest level. The EHHS Music Department is proud to be represented by these two young men, who are sure to have a profound musical experience.
