Long Beach High School musicians have earned a total of six acceptances into the NYSSMA All-State Conference. Collectively, the group of five students secured three selections to ensembles and three as alternates.

Congratulations to bass clarinetist Layla Hakimzadeh and baritone saxophonist Matthias Roth for their admission to the All-State Symphonic Band, and French hornist Chandler Rosensweig for joining the All-State Symphonic Orchestra. Matthias was additionally selected as an alternate on the alto saxophone, as was Delphine Esformes. Danielle Shokrian was chosen as a bass clarinet alternate. 

The students will perform in Rochester from Dec. 5-8 at the 84th Annual NYSSMA Winter Music Festival. All are in the Tri-M Music Honor Society at Long Beach High School and have performed in All-County ensembles in the past. Layla was an alternate last year and Delphine and Matthias both participated in All-County Jazz.
