Congratulations to both Lourdeans on their acceptance into the NYSSMA Conference All-State Festival this past weekend (November 17 and 18) held at Taconic Hills High School. 

Over 6000 students from across New York State prepared for the All-State evaluations and only roughly 900 were chosen. Lourdes band director, Mr. Paul Bellino, stated that “It is very difficult to get into this festival and both musicians had a wonderful performance!” 

“It was great to be able to play my instruments with others that have the same talent and drive for success. It was an awesome experience,” says Tyler.

Daniel adds “I had long hours of practice with my voice coach and the mixed chorus but it was all worth it. It was a fun day and I met a lot of talented and friendly people.”

Daniel sang tenor with the mixed chorus and Tyler performed both a violin and piano solo.
