Camellia, Amanda and Justin Named NYSSMA All-State Musicians!

Earlier this month, the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) named three Wheatley students All-State musicians!

Congratulations to:

  • Camellia Ye, Junior (cello)
  • Amanda Kim, Junior (cello)
  • Justin Vega, Senior (violin)

Students earn NYSSMA recognition through the various NYSMAA festivals held around the state in the spring. Approximately 6,500 student musicians are evaluated during this process, with roughly 900 earning All-State recognition.

Camellia will play with the Symphonic Orchestra at the NYSSMA All-State Conference in Rochester later this fall, with Amanda and Justin serving as alternates.

Thanks to our music faculty, Dr. Peggy Ho, Angela Luftig and Stan Orlovsky, for their support of all of our student musicians!
