9 Join All-County Band

9 Join All-County Band

Nine students from the Silver Creek Central School District will perform with dozens of young musicians from around the region in the 5th & 6th Grade All-County Band this winter. They will gather for a day of rehearsal Feb. 9, 2019, at Chautauqua Lake Central School in Mayville followed by a performance with a guest conductor.

 

These talented student musicians are: sixth-grader Adelyne Richardson (first flute), fifth-grader Shirley Chen (second flute), fifth-grader Ella Austin (second flute), sixth-grader Kaden Weeks (first clarinet), sixth-grader Makayla Kelly (first clarinet), fifth-grader Mackenzie Mosher (second saxophone), sixth-grader Cassidy Westbrook (first trombone), fifth-grader Cole Hastings (baritone) and sixth-grader Brady Helmer (percussion). 

Representing the largest group of students selected for an All-County band in the district in the past four years, these young musicians are under the direction of teachers Kiersten Ferguson, director of bands for grades 6 through 12 at the middle and high schools, and Brianna Hoige, director of bands for grades 4 and 5 at the elementary school. 

“Thank you to the parents for supporting their child’s talents and for the teachers for supporting the students as they rehearse and prepare for this opportunity,” said Ferguson.
