Division Avenue High School senior Dawn Kim has been selected to perform as a violinist with the All-State Symphony Orchestra during the New York State School Music Association Winter Conference, to be held at the Eastman Theatre in Rochester, New York, Dec. 1-4.
Joy Kim, a junior, has been selected to the same ensemble as an alternate for violin. If additional violinists are needed across the state, she may be called upon to participate in this prestigious musical event.
Curriculum Associate for Music Vincent D'Ulisse credited the students' All-State selection to hard work and excellent teaching. "Their success is a result of their hard work and personal discipline, as well as excellent teaching by their orchestra teachers and school district support," he said.
