RCS musicians make the cut for Area All State Festival

Fifteen Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School students played their way to a position in this year’s New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Area All State Festival. The festival will be held Nov. 16 and 17 at the Saratoga Springs High School.

Students were selected to participate in one of the performing ensembles based on their exceptional scores earned at last spring’s NYSSMA Solo and Ensemble Festival. They join the most talented students from NYSSMA Zone 7, which includes about 50 school districts from the greater capital region.
