Congratulations to Catskill High School’s Ava Higgins, who the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) has named an All-State Alternate. As an alternate on the chorus, Ava will be called upon if another singer in unable to participate in the festival. NYSSMA’s All-State Festival showcases only the most talented school musicians from around the state. Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, the All-State Festival will be held virtually this year.
Ava earned the distinction of being an All-State Alternate through her outstanding performance at her 2019 NYSSMA Solo Festival audition. A senior at Catskill High, she is no stranger to such accolades; last year, Ava was selected for the Zone 9 Area All-State Festival and also performed on stage at Carnegie Hall in February, 2020 with the Honors Performance Series Treble Choir.
Cats can and Cats will!
