Norwich students chosen for pretigious music event

NORWICH – Two Norwich High School seniors got the chance to play and sing among the elite last weekend in a chance of a lifetime opportunity.



In May, Gabrielle Chwazik-Gee for chorus and Jared Nichols on tuba demonstrated their talents and abilities to compete for a chance to play among the most musically talented students from across the state. Each student had to play a solo piece at level six, the hardest level one could play.

Chwazik-Gee sang “Voichesapete” by Mozart and Nichols played “Sonata for Tuba” by Frackenpohl. The students were then picked for the NYSSMA All-State Conference from the high scores each received. As many as 15,000 students audition, and from that only about 900 are chosen.
