NHS - Congratulations NYSBDA Musicians

Newfield High School students Nicholas Douglas (Euphonium), Maggie Lasher (Alto & Sax), and Isabel Rodriguez (Flute) were selected to perform in the New York State Band Director's Association (NYSBDA) Honor Band Festival this past weekend in Liverpool, NY.  Students had the opportunity to perform under Fredonia Band Master Paula Holcomb, performing music of the highest caliber with other outstanding students throughout the state.  Students were selected based on their perfect or near perfect NYSSMA All-State scores and teacher recommendation.  Our students represented us well including Maggie being selected to perform the soprano sax solo, Isabel earning first chair flute with many solos and Nick holding down the baseline in the low brass section!  Thank you to Dr. Harold Goldstein for recommending his students and chaperoning them along with music teacher Allison Bush.
