At a time when school budgets are strained to the breaking point educators gathered at Whitehall Central School Saturday made the case one note at a time that music makes a difference.

The best of the best in Washington County gathered from Granville, Whitehall, Argyle, Bolton, Cambridge, Fort Ann, Fort Edward, Greenwich, Hartford, Lake George and Salem to show off what a few days of hard work can accomplish.

In an opening welcome the assembled parents and family members who filled the nearly 700 seat auditorium to beyond capacity were thanked for their support of their children and music in the schools.

“A special thanks to all of you for supporting your children in all of their artistic endeavors. Your continued support of music events like this one, help us to create and educate a more worldly, well-rounded population for the betterment of all. To those of you who continue to support music education in your local school, we give a big thank you – music does make a difference,” Marc Pratt said.

“The students were very well prepared and they worked well together. Opportunities like these are very important, it was great to see so many parents there to support their students,” Granville Band director Crystal Everdyke said.

“This year was one of the best years for all of us involved,” Everdyke said. Granville Elementary music teacher Sean Boyd conducted the All-County Senior Band conductor. 

All-County Senior High Band members from Granville were: Danielle Milanese, Alyssa Martel, Phil Hicks, Devin Buxton, Rachel Kristoff, Karl Palmer and Alyssa Scott.

All-County Junior High Band members from Granville were: Marissa Brown, Shelby McEachron, Jenna Eckhard, Natalie Haines, Jordan Gates, Jon Halter, Josh Shaw, Greg Miholca and Heidi Smith.
