­čÄ╝ The Concert Band performed at NYSSMA level 3, while the Wind Ensemble took on the challenge of level 5.

Let's also celebrate our talented Grade 8 musicians who played in the Concert Band:

For those who might not know, NYSSMA stands for the New York State School Music Association. Their festivals, except for All-State, are evaluations rather than competitions, allowing students to compete with themselves year after year to improve their musical skills.
