MONTICELLO, NY — A Monticello High School (MHS) student has been recognized for musical excellence and named to the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) All-State Music Ensemble performance at the annual Winter Festival, held this year in Rochester on Sunday, December 2. Edward Spear will sing bass 1 in the mixed chorus. He is a student of MHS chorus director Marissa Jurow.
Monticello Central School District has a comprehensive performing arts program, and has been selected by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation as a “Best Community for Music Education” eight times. Having a student selected to participate in the annual festival of the state’s most dedicated music students is an extraordinary accomplishment for the district of Monticello.
