Seven Lynbrook High School student-musicians have earned All-State music honors from the New York State School Music Association. Seniors Juliana Condoleo, Leo Glassman and Danny Neri were selected to perform at the annual NYSSMA All-State Conference in Rochester from Nov. 29-Dec. 2. Juniors Arpie Bakhshian, Sara Bahri, Kaylin Tephly and Kara Vito were selected as alternates. 

Juliana will play flute in the Symphonic Band, while Leo, who also participated in the NYSSMA All-State Conference last year, will play double bass in the Symphony Orchestra. Danny was selected for both the trombone in the Symphonic Band and Instrumental Jazz. Arpie, Sara and Kaylin were chosen as alternates in violin and Kara was chosen as an alternate singer in soprano II.  

To be selected for this prestigious conference, thousands of students throughout New York State auditioned last year at NYSSMA Solo Evaluation Festivals. Students must perform the most difficult music at a Level 6 and receive the highest of scores to be considered and ultimately accepted into All-State. In Rochester, the students will participate in three days of rehearsals with prominent conductors which will conclude with all groups performing at the renowned Eastman Theater. 

The district congratulates these students as they join the proud and growing ranks of Lynbrook High School’s All-State musicians chosen throughout the years.
