Mohonasen music students Mariah Darconte, a senior, and Oliver Presson, a junior, were selected to perform in the NYSSMA All State Mixed Choir. In order to be chosen for this honor, students need to prepare a level 6 All State NYSSMA solo and receive a score of 100 the previous year.
Oliver and Mariah traveled to Rochester on Dec. 1-4 to work with a guest conductor. The students performed with 280 other singers from across the state in the All State Mixed Chorus on Dec. 4 at the Eastman Theater.
Five choir alternates from Mohonasen were chosen as well: Zachary Carpenter, Nathaniel Finke, Brandon Gunn, Kayla LaBonbard, and Nafis Wright.
“We are very proud of all the hard work and dedication these student musicians have shown in order to be selected for this statewide recognition,” said Nicole Gabriel, Mohonasen High School Choral Director.
