Ten distinguished Bethlehem Central High School students were recently selected as some of the best student musicians in New York state and were invited to showcase their talents last week as part of the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) All-State Conference in Rochester. 

The 10 were among the two dozen student musicians from the high school whose high marks on NYSSMA solo performances last spring earned them a spot at November’s Zone 7 Area All-State Festival. The Area All-State Festival features top instrumentalists and vocalists from nine counties across the greater Capital Region.

The selection process for an All-State musician is rigorous and includes teacher recommendations, participation in other performing organizations, in addition to top audition scores at the NYSSMA solo evaluations. 

Congratulations to these incredibly talented musicians and to our music department! They are making BC proud.
