BHS Musicians Recognized by NYS

Posted on 11/11/2020

Brentwood, New York (October 2020)—Three of Brentwood High School’s student musicians earned themselves a seat in the 2020 New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) All-State Ensembles as a result of their extraordinary talent and proficiency in music. Brentwood’s selectees were Wilmer Lopez, symphonic band (trumpet); Tiana Morris, soprano 2 (mixed chorus); Chloe Portillo, jazz soprano voice (vocal jazz).


“It brings us great pride to recognize our students’ talents and achievements. They are a prime example of our district’s phenomenal music department,” said Mr. Richard Loeschner. “On behalf of the Board of Education and central office, we commend Wilmer, Tiana, and Chloe, as well as their teachers who have been instrumental in their success, for the commitment and hard work throughout the years.”


Brentwood’s three students earned their place on NYSSMA’s All-State Ensembles by scoring 98 or higher during their audition for solo and ensemble festivals. This year’s performance, which was initially cancelled, will take place virtually later in the year.


“We are so proud of these students and their accomplishments, as they are a great credit to their families and teachers,” said Mr. John Callan, Principal of Brentwood High School.
