Madison Central School had eight students attend the most recent Madison County Music Educators’ Association Spring All-County Festival at Camden High School. The festival was held during the weekend of March 18th.
The All-County festivals are held throughout the year. The students come from thirteen member school districts, and rank as the best student musicians from their age group in Madison County and Western Oneida County.
Representing Madison in the sixth grade honor band was Ryan Gallagher, Liam Nolan, and Jacob Powers.
In vocal music, Madison was pleased to send a five-member delegation to the event. Mackenzie Cotter and Grace Lutke performed in the high school choir, while Alyssa Braun, Alexis Rundle, and Astrid Burkhart-Spiegel sang in the middle school choir.
All-County selection is a competitive process. To make the cut, students must prepare an audition piece for a highly-qualified adjudicator, and perform a sight reading exercise. If they receive a qualifying score, they may be asked to join the All-County ensembles.
