Conservatory Student Ben Wien Selected to Perform with Statewide Honor Concert Band

Congratulations to Conservatory French horn student Ben Wien, who will perform with the 2020 NYSBDA Statewide Middle School Honor Concert Band!

Ben was nominated by his school district and has been selected by a committee of board members from the New York State Band Directors’ Association to perform with the Middle School Honor Concert Band. To be selected for the Honor Band, students had to demonstrate outstanding musicianship, accomplishments, and exceptional musical interest, citizenship, and responsibility.

Rehearsals and performances with the band will take place during the weekend of March 6 and 7 in Troy, NY. The band will be conducted by Dr. Brian Cardany of The University of Rhode Island.

A Conservatory student since 2016, Ben is 13-years-old and an 8th grader at Eastchester Middle School. He studies French horn at the Conservatory with Adam Schommer.
