Earlier this week, Dr. Peggy Ho received notice that four Wheatley students were accepted in the New York State Band Directors Association (NYSBDA) Honor Band. This State-level ensemble provides students with an opportunity to rehearse and practice with some of the best musicians from throughout the state.
This is the first time that Wheatley has had four students accepted to this prestigious ensemble! Congratulations to senior Gabriella Schwartz (piccolo and flute), senior Emily Black (oboe), senior Arjun Kapoor (oboe) and junior Andrew Zuckerman (alternate on alto saxophone). Congratulations as well to Dr. Peggy Ho, their Band Director.
Stay tuned for news of their travels to Syracuse in March to rehearse and perform.
