Five Wheatley Students Recognized by NYSSMA!

Earlier last month, five of our Wheatley student-musicians were selected as 2020 New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) All-State musicians. These students were chosen out of thousands of students who auditioned for this honor at solo and ensemble festivals throughout New York State last year.

Congratulations to the following students:

  • Kaileigh Fiorillo (Soprano 2)
  • Layla Jarrahy (Violin)
  • Eric Ness (Cello)
  • Brianna Werny (Soprano 2)
  • Elizabeth Yuen (Violin)

Although there will not be a formal concert in Rochester this year, NYSSMA plans on assembling the All-State ensembles in a virtual format to record a 2020 Virtual All-State Concert.

Congratulations to the students and to our music faculty: Dr. Ho, Mr. Orlovsky, Mrs. Luftig (Ret.) and Mr. Watts!
