SARATOGA SPRINGS —Three dedicated Saratoga Springs High School musicians were selected as participants and/or alternates for the 2022 NYSSMA All-State Performing Ensemble in Rochester. These students were selected out of approximately 6,500 total All-State auditions across the state.

The Saratoga Springs High School musicians that were selected are: Andre Culpepper-Wehr (Jazz Vibraphone), Amelia Safran (Double Bass) and Evan Weatherwax (Tuba).

Students selected for a NYSSMA All-State ensemble successfully performed a rigorous level 6 All-State audition at their local NYSSMA festival in the Spring.  The students are invited to rehearse on Dec. 1-3 with a performance on Dec. 4, 2022, at the Eastman School of Music. This is one of the finest musical achievements and recognitions for a high school musician in New York State.
