This year, students at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School have been selected for numerous musical honors, highlighting their talent and dedication to the arts.
Student Alexandra Vallejos has been selected for NAFME All-National Chorus and will be attending the All-National Music Festival in Orlando, Florida from Nov. 26-29. There, Alexandra will participate in rigorous rehearsals and perform with students from around the country at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
The district is also pleased to announce that Elizabeth Choi has been selected for NAFME All-State Orchestra, and will be attending and performing at the All-State Winter Conference and Music Festival in Rochester from Nov. 30 to Dec 3.
In addition, seven Elwood students were selected for NYSCAME All-County, including Alexandra and Elizabeth. NYSCAME is extremely selective, only choosing those with the highest NYSSMA scores across Suffolk County from the previous spring. These musicians will take part in three intensive rehearsals that will culminate in a concert on Nov. 17 at Hauppauge High School.
