Congratulations to the following students for being selected to participate in the All-State Performing Ensembles at the 2015 NYSSMA Winter Conference in Rochester.  This is the most prestigious honor a public school music student can receive in the state of New York.  These students earned this invitation by preparing a solo at the highest level of difficulty and receiving the highest score based on their performance and sight reading at the NYSSMA Solo & Ensemble festival last Spring.  We are very proud of their accomplishments and know they will represent White Plains High School well!
