WEST VALLEY — Jordan Seltzer, a junior at West Valley Central School, was selected to play trumpet in the New York State School Music Association’s All-State Band. The band will rehearse and perform at the State University of New York at Fredonia in November.
Seltzer has been a member of band and has played the trumpet since fifth grade at West Valley. She has also participated in numerous all-county festivals since elementary school. In May, Seltzer performed a level VI solo and found out this fall that she was selected for all-state.
Last spring, more than 6,500 sophomores and juniors from across the state of New York prepared for all-state evaluations. The all-state selection process begins with the solo being evaluated by a NYSSMA certified all-state adjudicator at a designated site.
