Music festival reporting showcases talented students
The Buffalo News did good service in publishing the piece on the Area All State Music Festival in the Nov. 2 NeXt edition.
More than a thousand students in grades 7 through 9, selected from four counties of Western New York, participated in the orchestra, band and choruses.
It was a treat to see and hear them and to watch them as they listened, performed and behaved so well. I was delighted to read the names of all the school systems that would participate, and then to see a large picture of one of the choruses on The News’ Picture Page that Saturday. Keeping the public apprised of this type of event is important.
Congratulations to the schools, to the parents who support them, to the music teachers who prepared them and to the students who worked so hard to bring about wonderful performances.
