Washingtonville HS Student Musicians Selected For Festival
A total of 21 students were selected to perform in the Orange County Music Educators Association (OCMEA) Music Festival in January. Students auditioned for these ensembles in October and were selected as the best musicians in Orange County based on their scores from a prepared solo piece, scales, and sight reading.
Five Washingtonville students were selected for the Orchestra, conducted by David Dworken: Tatum Harvey, Jack Sullivan, Irene Dutescu, Caitlyn Edger, and David Rodriguez.
Four students were selected for the Mixed Choir, conducted by Joe Cerutti: Laine Blatte, Alexa Carbone, Julia Cestari, and Andrea Neporanny.
Twelve students played with the Symphonic Band, conducted by Michael J. Cirmo: Molly Stevenson, Madison Mitchell, Jade Sampson, Julia Ariano, Emily Chin, Madeline Rios, Anthony Basselini, Mikkel Kohn, Hannah Sacco, Connor Cunningham, Marisa Vermette, and Amanda Vazquez.
