Five band students from Durgee Junior High School in the Baldwinsville Central School District have been invited to perform with two select youth wind ensembles at Syracuse University.
Eighth-graders Katherine Bulger, Paige Dickter and Emily Martell have been selected for the Poco Allegro Youth Wind Ensemble, which is comprised of students in seventh and eighth grades from local school districts. Students are admitted based on teacher recommendation.
Ninth-graders Cate Beamish and Michael Stapleton have been selected for the Allegro Youth Wind Ensemble, based on an audition process. The ensemble features local students in ninth through 12th grades.
The students are band students of Kristina DuBois, band director for Durgee Junior High School.
