Four students from Kellenberg Memorial High School have achieved top honors in music for the 2015-16 school year. Three students were selected to participate in New York State School Music Association’s Conference All State performing ensembles in Rochester, NY in December. Donato Moneta, baritone horn, will perform with the All State Symphonic Band, Soprano Courtney O’Shea will perform with the All State Mixed Chorus and soprano Alexa Ford was selected to perform in the All State Vocal Jazz Ensemble. Additionally, alto Jacqueline Cotumaccio has been selected to perform with the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) All Eastern High School Chorus in February in Boston, MA. Students are selected for honors ensembles by auditions done the previous spring. Thousands of students across the state audition for seating in these ensembles each year. They are shown here with Bro. Kenneth Hoagland, S.M., Principal, Mr. Sean Vegas, band director and Mr. Clark Blanton, choral director at Kellenberg Memorial.
