Each year thousands of students complete an All State ensemble audition across New York State. Just over 900 students are selected as the best musicians in state. They will perform with the NYSSMA All State ensembles in Rochester, NY on December 7th and 8th.
This year Owego Free Academy had 3 students selected for this prestigious honor. Seniors Ashleigh Allen (alto 1) and Rachel Raftis (alto 2) will sing with the Treble Choir. Jayden Ripic, junior, will represent OFA in the Symphonic Band on French horn.
Senior Emmalyn Saddlemire (alto 1) is an alternate for the choir.
The OFA music department is proud to have strong student musicians and leaders. At OFA, we consistently have students reach this high level, a testament to their musical ability, character and work ethic.
