Seven students from Paul D. Schreiber High School were selected to represent the district at the 2020 Virtual New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) All-State Ensembles. Selected to participate were Daniel Chen (Violin): String Orchestra, Lily Dell (Alto): Mixed Chorus, Olivia Massa (Alto): Treble Chorus, Ian Miller (Tenor): Mixed Chorus, Gavin Shaub (Jazz Voice, Bass): Vocal Jazz, Emma Weston (Trumpet): Symphonic Band. Caleb Thomas (drum set) was also selected as an alternate for the All-State Jazz Ensemble, which only features one drummer and an alternate.
"Congratulations to our wonderful students and the music teachers who have worked with them to achieve these honors” said Director of Creative Arts, Kevin Scully. "We are also grateful to the Board of Education, administration and community members whose support helped make these accomplishments possible." Students were chosen to participate based on their proficiency scores achieved at previous festivals, as well as teacher recommendations. NYSSMA is one of the largest and most successful music organizations in the country. Nearly 5,000 members belong to NYSSMA, with approximately 100,000 students participating annually in spring adjudication festivals.
