The prestigious annual concert features the top music students from five counties who were selected based on their individual outstanding competition performances given last spring at the NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) Solo Music Festival.

The students selected for Area-All State are Garrett Bunce, Kristen Druse, Aimee Pelosi, Jennifer Giza, Daniel Braunstein, and Jessica Nesin. Garrett, Daniel and Kristen were selected for the chorus, and Aimee, Jennifer and Jessica were selected for the orchestra.

These students are active in many activities at Monticello High School. In the Music Department they are active members of the Orchestra, Band, Chorus and Chamber Music as well as performing with the Jazz Band, Chamber Singers and in the High School Musicals.
