The Babylon Junior-Senior High School is thrilled to announce that two student-musicians, Sydney Altbacker and Isabela Gaskill, were selected to perform at the 2019 National Association for Music Education’s All-Eastern Honors Ensembles based on their unparalleled musical talent. During the festival, which is to be held April 4-7, 2019 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Sydney will be singing with the All-Eastern Treble Choir and Isabela will be singing with the All-Eastern Mixed Chorus.  

With assistance from their music teacher, Brian Kroll, these exceptional students will prepare remarkably challenging music that they will perform under the leadership of prominent conductors in this biennial event. Students will spend three days rehearsing with one of five conductors, which will ultimately lead to the performances on April 7. 

Both Isabela and Sydney are to be joined by more than 780 of the most musically talented high school students in the Eastern region of the United States. According to Babylon Junior-Senior High School Director of Fine Arts and Music Angela Turk, this is one of the highest honors a high school musician can attain.
