Eight Middle School Students Earn A Spot in the Jr. High All-County Band

The first weekend in February, 17 students from Gananda Central School District auditioned for this year's all-county band festival to be hosted at Ruben A. Cirillo High School on March 15 and 16.  Our students, in grades 7-12, all performed extremely well with 16 of the 17 musicians earning spots in this year's band.  16 of our students scored at least 91 out of 100, including 3 perfect scores and a number of scores in the high 90s.  
 
In order to qualify for a spot in the band, the students had to prepare the following:
  1. Seven major scales from memory
  2. Two prepared excerpts
  3. Perform a sight-reading excerpt
