We are proud to announce that the following students entered the inaugural ArtsEdNJ Solo and Ensemble Festival last month and represented West Essex extremely well.
There were over 1,000 entries from all over the state and our WE students worked hard to practice and record themselves for the event. Each student received a score, rating, and recorded feedback from professional independent adjudicators from around the United States.
Joey Bejjani (11th) and Gabriel Ruszala (12th) scored among the top musicians who were invited to State Finals later in the year.
