The Cazenovia High School Music Department is pleased to announce that Timothy Kempton has been selected to the NY State Conference All-State Mixed Chorus. He will participate in a concert held at the acclaimed Eastman Theatre in Rochester, NY during the annual Winter Conference of the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) to be held from December 4 –7, 2014. Tim, a junior, is the son of Shelly Kempton and David Blair. He is a member of the high school Concert Choir and Chamber Choir. Tim has studied privately with Eric Toyama and has been involved in the High School Drama Club spring musical. Students are selected for the All-State ensembles based upon NYSSMA Solo scores.

If you see Tim Kempton in the next few days be sure to congratulate him and wish him luck as he represents Cazenovia in the NY State Conference All-State Chorus this weekend. He will leave at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday for Rochester, where he will join other top student musicians from throughout the state, rehearsing and performing in concert at the Eastman Theater. This is the highest honor in the state for a high school music student and Tim is to be congratulated for his outstanding achievement.
