Two accomplished student-musicians will be representing the school district at All-State and All-County competitions this fall after successful auditions last year.

Aidan McGlone, a senior soprano, has been selected as a member of the highly selective 2014 All-State Vocal Jazz Ensemble, which will perform at the NYSSMA Winter Conference in Rochester this December. McGlone was chosen from a large pool of candidates that auditioned last spring at NYSSMA solo and ensemble festivals throughout the state. She was chosen based upon her proficiency score and teacher recommendations.

Kristian Morgan, a junior tenor, was selected to represent Amityville as a member of the NYSCAME/Suffolk All-County Mixed Choir. Rehearsals and a performance from the select choir will take place in November. Morgan was one of many students who auditioned at NYSSMA solo and ensemble festivals held throughout Suffolk County last spring. The All-County festival will feature the county’s top 11th- and 12th-grade students. Morgan was chosen based on his proficiency score and teacher recommendations.

“I am extremely pleased for Aidan and Kristian,” said Fran Fernandez, Amityville’s fine arts director. “I congratulate them as well as their families and their past and present music teachers on this outstanding achievement.”
