BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Chenango Forks High School students have been selected to perform at the Conference All-State this weekend in Rochester, N.Y and the Area-All State at Ithaca College in February.

The four-day conference this weekend will bring in students from across the state that have the top scores from the New York State School Music Association. The Area All-State Chorus and Band performances are in February.

Choral Director Lexi Bryant said the students practiced, rehearsed and auditioned with NYSSMA solos last spring. They all scored well enough to be considered and were selected to perform.

“To have five students given the opportunity from our district, it’s amazing,” said Bryant. “They really worked hard for me and I couldn’t ask for a better group of kids to be taking this year.”

Brendan Samsel will be attending the Conference All-State this weekend, and Brendan Samsel, Connor Little, Jacob Beadle and Jonathan Hozempa will all be in the Area All-State Chorus. Maddox Thornton will play the trombone in the Area All-State Band.
