Ramsey Music Students Continue to Excel

Ramsey Music Students Continue to Excel

By Ken Veit, Supervisor of Fine Arts 

Ramsey music student at all levels continued to excel in earning many more seats to Region and State - level honor ensembles during the Winter and Spring of 2019. In February, 13 Smith School students earned spots in Region I Middle School Band, Orchestra, and Chorus. These students audition against the best music students from across Northern New Jersey, and they performed in a concert in March. More recently, 9 6th grade students at Smith School were selected to be in the Region I Elementary Honors Band, which will perform in May. And finally, 6 RHS students just earned acceptance to the 2019-2020 NJ All-State Chorus, the most choral students to gain all-state acceptance in more than 25 years! In total, Ramsey students have earned OVER 70 seats to 2018-19 Honor Ensembles, which is quite an accomplishments. Here is a complete listing of the student most recently accepted.
