Sayville Music Students Achieve All State

  • Congratulations to the seven Sayville Music Students and five alternates (listed below) who achieved All-State status as a result of the highest proficiency scoring during the NYSSMA festival last spring. These students will perform at the 2008 NYSSMA Winter Conference (Rochester) in December. While over 2,400 students this year received scores of 98 or higher and were recommended for All-State consideration, only 900 musicians have been picked statewide to participate in NYSSMA Conference All-State music groups. 


    Considering the number of students from our small school district who qualified, the Sayville music department is delighted by the accomplishments of the following deserving students:


    Doug Jones-Tuba

    Gary Jones-Trombone

    Julie MacDonell -Trumpet

    Christina Natoli -Flute

    Thomas Mittiga-Vocal

    Angharad Rebholz-Vocal

    Roxanne York -Vocal


    Five alternates

    Melissa LaPinta-Clarinet

    Matthew Martinez-Alto Sax

    Tessa Buono Jazz -Vocal

    Deanna Lumley- Vocal

    Alexis Minogue -Vocal
