Congratulations to senior Alexandra Meli who raised her voice at the state capitol building as part of the All-State Vocal Jazz Ensemble at the New York State School Music Association’s Joseph Sugar Day in Albany.

Joe Sugar Day is NYSSMA’s yearly visit to state legislators to advocate for music education. It is named in honor of Joe Sugar, a long-time NYSSMA music education advocate who was instrumental in the creation of Music in our Schools Month.

“We are all very proud of her many accomplishments,” music teacher David Minelli said of Alexandra’s participation.
