The Westchester County School Music Association (WCSMA) recently announced that 36 Bronxville School students were selected to All-County music ensembles for its 2014 elementary and intermediate festival concerts, to be held March 8 and 9 at SUNY Purchase.

The Elementary Festival includes students in grades four through six. Elementary orchestra selections include fifth-graders Henry Lynn (bass), Elizabeth Murray and Rachel Roberts (violin); sixth-graders Yotaro Moriyasu (viola), Hailey Mullen (violin), Alexandria Paradise (cello), Sofia Ricciarini (violin) and Ellie Russo (bass).

Elementary band selections include sixth-graders Finlay Boardman (trombone), Annabel Evison (trumpet), James Ferguson (French horn) and Theodore Sperber (trumpet).

Elementary chorus selections include sixth-graders Gaby Laval Mullen, Natalia Morato and Holly Ungvary (soprano), in addition to Max Laval-Mullen, Xavier Layton, Anna Torres and Luke Watkins (alto).

The Intermediate Festival includes students in grades seven through nine. Intermediate orchestra selections include ninth-grader Ali Gokhan (viola) and eighth-grader Nate Moore (bass). Intermediate band selections include seventh-graders Timothy Cushman (baritone saxophone) and Paul Magaud (flute), along with ninth-grader Michael Landy (named principal oboe).

Intermediate chorus selections include seventh-grader Vance Wood (soprano); eighth-graders Evelyn Kluemper (soprano), Hadley Barr and Nicole Torres (alto), Roberto Gandara, Griffin Garbarini, Quintin George, Ned McCann, Colin McCloskey and Sam Powell (baritone), and ninth-graders Jason Cushman and Niko Goutakolis (baritone).

The instrumentalists were chosen by WCSMA based on auditions conducted at last spring's NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) Solo Festival, where they were required to perform a solo piece, sight-read and play scales. The singers were chosen by their school choral director on the basis of skills and interest.
