Westhampton Beach High School seniors Josh Kaplan, Evan Lockwood and Mario Ortiz have been selected to perform with the mixed chorus at the prestigious New York State School Music Association All-State Festival, to be held virtually Dec. 3-5.
Normally, students are selected based on their solo performances at NYSSMA adjudications the prior spring. However, due to COVID-19 and NYSSMA cancellations, the students were named based on scores they received during their 2018-19 adjudications. Teacher recommendations also played a role.
Additionally, senior Hannah Parsons was selected as an alternate for the mixed chorus.
The Westhampton Beach School District congratulates each of these students on their musical accomplishments.
