Six Harborfields High School students will have the chance to perform at the NYSSMA All-State festival in December. 

The students—Evangelea Andreadis, Hope Lusby, Jennifer Mittelman, Ty Ellenbogen, Angeline Miraglia and Everett Borman—were selected as some of the top students to perform a level six solo for a NYSSMA adjudicator last April. In doing so, four of them were selected to travel to Rochester from Dec. 5 to Dec. 8 to participate in a weekend of rigorous rehearsals that culminate in a final concert at the Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. The remaining two were selected as alternates and will be eligible to participate if another student is unable to attend.

More than 7,000 students compete statewide each year for selection to NYSSMA All-State. This year, approximately 900 students were chosen and will perform with one of eight All-State ensembles, according to Music Department Coordinator Daniel Bilawsky.
