GUILDERLAND — Five Guilderland students have been selected to participate in the New York State Honor Bands in March.
Each year, Honor Band members are chosen from hundreds of applicants based upon their New York State School Music Association score from the previous spring. Each ensemble rehearses and performs during the New York State Band Directors Annual Symposium to be held this year at the Syracuse Convention Center from March 1 to 3.
The High School Honor Band, under the direction of Dr. James McRoy of Hofstra University, will include Angelo Amore and Will Wang, each on clarinet;
Connor Grocki on oboe; and Therese Giordano on French horn.
Performing with the Middle School Honor Band, under the direction of Dr. Glen Adsit with the Hartt School of Music, will be eighth-grade trombonist Joe Giordano.
The students were taught by Jennifer Austin, Kathleen Ehlinger, and Lee Russo.
