Royalton-Hartland High School is pleased to announce that senior Benjamin Bacon has been selected to the All-State Wind Ensemble. 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 3-6, 2015. Those chosen to participate in an ensemble at this conference represent the best high school musicians from all of New York State as determined by previous NYSSMA solo festival scores and teacher recommendation.

Benjamin, a talented trombonist, is one of just a few Roy-Hart students to achieve this level of musicianship and the only student ever to make an All State ensemble in both his junior and senior year, having performed with the All State Symphonic Band last year. He performs with the Roy-Hart High School Concert Band and pit orchestra as well as the Sanborn Fire Company Band.
