Lake Shore Middle School students selected to area performing ensembles

This year, Lake Shore Middle School had five students accepted to perform with the Junior High Area-All State Band, String Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, and Chorus. Eighth-grade students Lauren Ingaro was selected for the string orchestra, Becket Panfil for the symphony orchestra and Hanna Prince for the band. Aryn Fitzgerald and Skylar General were selected for the chorus. These ensembles are compromised of the top musicians in 7th, 8th and 9th grades from Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties.

In June 2013 these students and many others participated in the NYSSMA Area-All State Solo Competition, held at City Honors High School in Buffalo. The students who participated practiced and performed a solo, scales and sight-reading. Students who participated in the solo festival could be nominated for Area-All State Performing Ensembles. The students had an application submitted on their behalf, along with their score sheets.

These students are under the direction of Miss Alicia Louttit and Ms. Jennifer Meyer and Mrs. Anna Agro.
