Two Harrison High School students earned positions in 2022 All State ensembles! Jack Eiff has been selected as a Bass in the All State Chorus, Fjord Deda has been selected as a Trumpet 1 performer in the All State Symphonic Band.  They will be preparing and performing music with top student musicians chosen from across New York State at the acclaimed Eastman Theater in Rochester, NY during the annual Winter Conference of the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) in early December. 

In addition, nine Harrison High School students were selected as Area All-State performers- Chorus: Jack Eiff, Joey Lipple Smetana, Lucia Lammers, David Fiery; Orchestra: Ai Yamamoto, Matthew Perez; Band: Fjord Deda, Sabrina Kalanz, Charles Zenhausen. They will prepare and perform music with top musicians from across Westchester county at White Plains HS in early November

Students were selected by the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) by preparing and performing a solo piece at the Spring NYSSMA Festival last year. NYSSMA provides opportunities for thousands of students across New York state to perform competitively by preparing a solo piece of music evaluated by certified judges who provide critical feedback to student performers. Competing in NYSSMA is a rigorous, challenging process that requires much preparation and practice. 

Congratulations to All-State Participants - Chorus: Jack Eiff; Band: Fjord Deda. 

Congratulations to Area All-State Participants – Chorus: Jack Eiff, Joey Lipple Smetana, Lucia Lammers, David Fiery; Orchestra: Ai Yamamoto, Matthew Perez; Band: Fjord Deda, Sabrina Kalanz, Charles Zenhausen.
