JPS Students Participate in Jr. High Area All-States

JHS ninth graders, Dylan Lydell (band) and Adam Chang (full orchestra), Washington eighth grader Maisy Chang (full orchestra) and Persell seventh grader Nicole Carlson (string orchestra) recently participated the Junior High Area All- States held in Akron, NY. These exceptional students participated due to the grade they received on their upper level NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) solo at Jamestown’s NYSSMA festival last May at Jefferson Middle School.

“The NYSSMA Junior High Festival is only for students in grades 7-9 in the Western New York Area, so clearly Jamestown was well represented by these fine students,” said JHS Orchestra Director Katie Derrenbacher. “They have reached a high-level of playing for their age. Being accepted into these ensembles is a huge honor for these students.”
