SCMEA Student Musicians manuscript paper banner thumbnail209046
Eighteen student-musicians from the West Babylon School District were chosen to perform at the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association All-County honors ensembles. Students are nominated by their music teachers and chosen by a SCMEA selection committee based on their outstanding performance in school music programs, as well as in local NYSSMA solo festivals.

The West Babylon student-musicians will join the ranks of the county’s finest orchestra, chorus and band musicians for rehearsals and performances during two weekends in March.

Each year, thousands of students are nominated for SCMEA All-County. Due to limitations related to COVID-19, only 90 students per ensemble were selected for each SCMEA divisional music festival this year.
