A record number of student-musicians from the Syosset Central School District were recently recognized for excellence and achievement on the county, state and national levels.

This fall, a record number of student-musicians from the Syosset Central School District were recognized for excellence and achievement on the county, state and national levels. 

A total of 272 students from all 10 Syosset schools were recognized as All-County
musicians. These students will be rehearsing in January with their peers from throughout the county and performing at the Tilles Center on the LIU Post campus.

The New York State School Music Association recognized 21 Syosset High School 
students with 24 acceptances as either performers or alternates for All-State. Of these, 14 will travel to Rochester in early December to perform alongside the finest student-musicians in New York State. Their concerts will take place at the Eastman School of Music’s Eastman Theatre.

All-State musicians are: Victoria Albanese, Women’s Chorus; Christopher Cardoz, trombone; Austin Chen, trumpet; Rohit Gupta, snare drum and timpani alternate; Gregory Kim, trombone; Mary Kim, violin; Michelle Lee, flute; Adam Obedian, Mixed Chorus; Sarah Sayage, Mixed Chorus; Daphne Solomon, Mixed Chorus; Jeffrey Wang, violin; Angela Wee, violin; Amanda Xu, violin; Sharon Yoon, accepted 
on both violin and viola; Michael Zhu, tuba; Florence Fu, flute alternate; Lynn Hur, cello alternate; Stella Kang, viola alternate; Brett Levine, chorus alternate; Tyler Oringer, jazz drum set alternate; and Rohith Rokkam, mallet percussion and snare drum alternate.

Additionally, Syosset High School seniors Justin Bergson and Hyunkee Sung recently performed with the All-National Honors Ensembles at the National Association for Music Education National Conference in Nashville, Tenn. Justin sang with the All-National Chorus and Hyunkee played viola with the All-National Orchestra.

“Syosset consistently has among the highest number of student-musicians accepted into these very prestigious honors ensembles,” said Michael Salzman, the district’s coordinator of fine and performing arts. “We are especially proud this year that so many of our students have been recognized by these outside organizations and asked to represent our schools.”
