On Saturday, November 21, students from St. Lawrence, Jefferson, Louis and Franklin Counties joined musical forces to present an outstanding concert which included Orchestra, Choir and Concert Band. Our own Mara Vaccaro, Sage Richards and Liam Whalen were members of the elite band that played an exceptional program. 

Lead by retired professor, Scot Lavigne (Crane School of Music) the students prepared four pieces of difficult music in a two day period. Since all participants were chosen on the strength of their NYSSMA solos, it was not surprising that the young musicians were able to pull together a great program in a short time. 

The Saturday afternoon concert was well attended and  showcased  the finest student musicians in our region. Having parents and siblings attend the concert is inspirational to all involved and I am sure we will have more elite musicians joining this great musical tradition.
