8 OFA Music Department Students Selected For NYSSMA Honors Ensembles

Each year thousands of students complete an All State ensemble audition across New York State.  Only 800 students are selected as the best musicians in state.  They perform with the NYSSMA all state ensembles in Rochester, NY on December 1 and 2 2018.  

This year Owego Free Academy had 6 students selected for this prestigious honor.  Seniors Camden Dyer-DeCator (bass 1), Abigail Dove (soprano 1) and Ally Fisher (soprano 1) are in the Mixed Choir.  Juniors Ashleigh Allen (alto 1) and Rachel Raftis (alto 2) will sing with the Treble Choir.  Emmalyn Saddlemire, junior, will represent OFA in the Symphonic Band on Bb clarinet.  Seniors Andrew Clark (bass 2) and Katie Ulrich (alto 1) are alternates.  This is the largest group of students to attend All State in OFA's recent history.  Additionally, this is Dyer-DeCator's second year in All State Mixed Choir.  

The OFA music department is proud to have a strong and large class of junior and senior musicians.  They work together very well and push each other towards success.  This is a testament to their musical ability, character and work ethic.
