Two Columbia High School students were selected to this year’s NYSSMA All State Music Festival. Tyler Davis ’21 was selected to All State Jazz Ensemble on Saxophone and Brigid Mack ’21 was accepted to All State Treble Choir as an alto. Additionally, Ms. Mack was accepted into All Eastern.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the All State Music Festival will be held virtually on Sunday, April 11. The concert featuring both students will start that day at 4:00 p.m. and be available at the NYSSMA website.
