Six talented student-musicians from Lynbrook High School recently earned honors from the New York State School Music Association. Juniors Camilla Bahri, Emily Bergin, John Kelhetter and Ricki Rizzo were selected to perform at the annual NYSSMA All-State Conference in Rochester from Dec. 5-8. Emily was also selected as an alternate for jazz electric/string bass. Senior Arpie Bakhshian and junior Joshua Christian were selected as alternates for violin and alto saxophone, respectively.

In Rochester, Camilla will perform the violincello and Emily will perform the double bass in the string orchestra. Singers John and Ricki will perform in the mixed chorus and treble chorus, respectively. Students earned the prestigious honor to perform in these ensembles based on their NYSSMA auditions last spring during solo and ensemble festivals.

Congratulations to all six student-musicians on this outstanding achievement!
