Piedmont High School Musicians Named to All-State Bands

Wednesday, January 19th, 2022 - Posted in All District News District Communications

Congratulations to Piedmont High School Jazz Band students – senior Will Davies and freshman Dorothy Nemeth – for their recent acceptance to the CA All-State Band and Orchestra Ensembles! Will and Dorothy were two of over 6,000 student-musicians who submitted their individual auditions in December and learned of their acceptance over Winter Break.

Both will participate in rehearsals for several days and perform with their ensembles at the CA State Music Education Conference, February 17-20, in Fresno. They will have the opportunity to rehearse with accomplished directors and sit alongside the best musicians in the state of California!

Will was accepted as the one and only Jazz Band drummer for the CA All-State Jazz Band group! The group is made up of only 16 musicians from across the state and is a true accomplishment to win the drum position!

Dorothy was accepted on cello to the All-State Symphony Orchestra, a group of 114 string and wind musicians. The Symphony Orchestra is the most elite of the groups at the conference. She is one of only 10 freshmen accepted into the group!
