The festival, comprised of students in four ensembles; orchestra, band, treble choir, and mixed choir, includes intensive rehearsals followed by a formal concert for friends and family. Jaden’s ensemble, mixed choir, was rehearsed and conducted by Dr. Jason Thompson, Ph.D. and accompanied by Aimee Brainard.  We are extremely proud of her achievement. 

“I had a wonderful experience this weekend at NYSSMA Area All-State,” said Jaden. “I was able to learn a lot from Dr. Jason Thompson, our accompanist and my peers. The music that was selected was both challenging and enjoyable, and the diversity of the selection made for a great opportunity for me to grow as a musician.”
