The OA Music Department is proud to congratulate 5 outstanding student musicians on their acceptance into All State and All National level ensembles. Musicians in these ensembles are the best in this country. They auditioned for this honor among thousands of other applicants. Just over 900 students are selected. This year they will participate in virtual ensembles and workshops as part of their acceptance.
This year Owego Free Academy had 5 students selected or named alternate for this prestigious honor. Senior Jacob Dove will perform with the All National Modern Band on trombone. Seniors Kenndy Dyer-DeCator (alto 1) and Allison Welch (soprano 1) will sing with the Mixed Choir. For the second year, Jayden Ripic will represent OFA in the Wind Ensemble on French horn. Senior Jason Caldwell (percussion) is an alternate for the band.
The OFA music department is proud to have strong student musicians and leaders. Consistently at OFA we have students reach this high level, a testament to their musical ability, character and work ethic.
