I would like to express my thanks to our performers and their conductors, to our educators, our guests, our custodial and A/V staff and to the Booster volunteers for a truly successful concert series. It was a tremendous effort by the event coordinators and the performances on Saturday, 11/17/2012 truly represented the talented students in our Zone (9) . For those continuing to the All State Festival in Rochester on December 1st and 2nd, enjoy the show, and bring a warm jacket!

Job well done.
