West Senior students recently performed in this year’s Erie County Music Educators Association ECMEA Vocal Jazz Ensemble! Vocal Jazz students had spent the fall and early winter preparing a vocal jazz solo. They then attended the ECMEA Solo Festival at Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts on Saturday, January 22nd.
Students from Erie County who scored well were selected for the 2022 ECMEA Vocal Jazz. Thirteen of the twenty-four singers chosen county-wide were from West Senior High School! Rehearsals were held on March 11 & 12 with conductor Robert Pacillo, Executive Director and Founder of Harmonia Chamber Singers,and culminated with a concert on the 12th.
Congratulations to all for working hard to be part of this prestigious and memorable experience!
