Canajoharie student musicians selected for Area All State

Three Canajoharie High School students have been selected to perform in the New York State School Music Association Area All-State Concert Band.

Senior Elijah Bowley, french horn; junior Samantha Field, clarinet and sophomore Alex Sydow, trombone, will perform with the Area All-State band at the NYSSMA Zone 7 Area All State Music Festival at Saratoga Springs High School on Nov. 18 and 19 for rehearsals and a concert.

Students were accepted based on their NYSSMA scores from last year and the recommendation of Band Director Tim Field.

“I am very proud of these students. This is the first time we’ve have had three students accepted to the Area All-State Concert Band,” Mr. Field said.
