Four students from South Middle School have been accepted to perform in the Middle School Honor Concert Band at the New York State Band Directors Association (NYSBDA) Honor Concert Bands Conference. This is the fifteenth consecutive year that South Middle musicians have been selected for this honor.

South Middle participants, with their instrument, are: Olivia Gu, clarinet; Zirong (Isabella) Jiang, flute; Yejin Son, oboe; and Sophia Wu, flute. Their teacher is Alan Schwartz, instrumental music teacher/music department head.

Students were selected for the Middle School Honor Concert Band by a statewide panel of NYSBDA music educators who evaluated recordings of student performances. Honor Concert Band performances will be held in Syracuse in early March 2022.
