High School and Middle School Students Perform in Greater Utica Honors Ensembles
On Saturday, Jan. 25, a total of 35 students from the Whitesboro Middle School Campus and Whitesboro High School performed in the Greater Utica Honors Ensembles at Westmoreland High School.
Students in grades 6-8 performed in the Honors Middle School Concert Band and students in grades 9-12 performed in the Youth Wind Ensemble. The honors ensembles are comprised of students from local school districts, and students were selected based on teacher recommendation. Students rehearsed on three Saturdays prior to the concert.
Dr. Bradley Ethington of Syracuse University was the distinguished conductor of both the Middle School Concert Band and the Youth Wind Ensemble. This was a rewarding opportunity for our students to work with a college professor. They worked very hard and enjoyed preparing for this memorable event!
