Two Locust Valley seniors impressed the judges with their performances at the NYSSMA Solo Evaluation Festival this past spring.
Marconi D’Auria-Gupta was selected to play viola with the All-State Symphony Orchestra, while his brother, Carmine D’Auria-Gupta, was selected to play the violin. Both students were chosen based on the scores they received at the festival.
To be considered for the prestigious All-State orchestra, students must score an A+ 100 on a Level 6 piece and receive recommendation from the festival judge. The NYSSMA Winter Conference will be held in Rochester from Dec. 3 to 6.
